Default Throttle and shift cables....

I am wanting to replace my throttle and shift cables on big max. I have the original us Marine part numbers but having trouble converting or finding a mercury part number!! I donít want to pull out of the water without knowing I have the right parts. I am also looking into ordering a replacement twin shift control. All I want is factory replacements....donít want to upgrade to any ďnewĒ style shifters. Any help from the Maxum brain trusts greatly appreciated!!! All I want is my shifters to be buttery smooth like my dock neighbors boat!!!

Call West Marine with the part numbers and they can give the teleflex replacement part number. Teleflex probably made the originals.

I changed over to Morse Controllers super smooth and just a tad taller witch makes it easier to move its like butter now . Docking is 100% better . There made by Teleflex also. Much better built the org.

I replaced mine with a Quicksilver Shifter and Teleflex cables. Quicksilver is the Merc. brand. Cables are cables.

When my original 3200 scr shifter had to be replaced, I went with the Merc Gen2 model. It requires a slightly larger hole, but it shifts as smooth as butter. Cables were teleflex. All work was done by my mechanic so I don't know about part numbers. Here is the pic of the helm.

I upgraded the shifter model on mine as well. I also needed to widen the hole. I was very happy with the upgrade. I installed the cables and shifter myself. I had my mechanic assist with the portion that runs through the transom assembly. That is really the key to that job.
