Step 12 Here is the issue…..the mount for the throttle arm is pushed up against the side of the housing. The problem with this is it allows (due to alignment) the tension assembly to slightly turn, which allows the throttle arm to move slightly…..about ¼-1/2 a throttle handle width. I will attach a picture for reference and discuss the fix in the next slide.
Step 13 You will need a 10mm socket with a small extension and a standard screwdriver. You will loosen the two bolts holding down the shaft (once the bolts are loose this will allow the shaft to move or wiggle around the bolts), then insert your screwdriver between the side of the housing and small forked piece applying pressure to keep the piece from traveling towards the side when you tighten the bolts. I tightened the bottom bolt first, keep tension on for both.
Step 14 If you have a boat with the starboard throttle that slops or springs you will need to do the same steps, BUT you will want the forked bracket up against the side of the housing. I have no idea why but this is what makes mine work. I believe it has to do with the alignment of the forked piece to the tension assembly. The test is still the same, no slop or movement on the throttle arm when assembled.
Step 15 Reinstall the tension assembly Reinstall the throttle arm and slightly tighten the tension assembly.
Step 16 Reinstall the cast metal slide and snap ring. Put the brass peg on the rotating assembly into the bottom track on the cast metal piece. Reinstall plastic cover and four Phillips head screws.
Step 17 Here is the test. Grab the throttle arm where the throttle cable would attach and wiggle it. If you have the tension assembly remotely tight the throttle arm should not wiggle. If it does go back and adjust the forked piece again until there is no more wiggle. That’s the fix…really.
Step 18 Now go back to step eight and work backwards to reassemble the unit. Make sure (once you have reinstalled everything) you check to see the handle does not move backward anymore.
