Confidence Rating: Accident investigation report completed and information captured
The pilot reported that during the takeoff/initial climb the engine "smoothly throttled back to a low power setting although throttle lever was at full position." During the ensuing forced landing in a soft field, the airplane's fuselage sustained damage. Examination of the engine revealed that the throttle linkage assembly's push/pull rod separated from the support bushing. The FAA inspector, who examined the airplane, stated that the rod end was "inadequately" engaged in the support bushing "due to improper installation."

Probable Cause: the loss of engine power during takeoff resulting from the inadequate engagement of the throttle torque tube rod end into the support bushing by unknown maintenance personnel.
