Boating does not have to be a challenge. Enjoy!

Welcome aboard

I hope the only challenge is not wanting to be on her.

What's wrong with the throttle control?

Very hard to put it into gear. Lever catch worn and trim buttons don't work.

Hard to put into gear is most likely the shift cable. Try disconnecting the cable and see if it moves freely.

Lever catch worn? Not sure what you are refering too.

Trim not working is most likely the up and down soleniods trim up could also be a bad trim limit switch. Try jumping 12V to the low current side of each soleniod terminals, if not working jump to high current side, if works the soleniods are bad. They are about $25 US.

Seldom is the helm control the issue for these.

Thanks Mike,
I shall try all of that and see how I get on. The 'lever catch is on the underside of the control stick; it stops the control from moving from neutral I think!

Cheers, Karl

Got you, yep it's there to prevent one from bumping the control into gear accidently.

Fantastic Mike. Thanks a million. It also appears that it goes into reverse when pushed forward and vice versa! So I kinda figured that I would get a mercury gen ii with new cables and start at the beginning. On the bright side there is no rot in the bilge ��

Do you know if the cables are on right? Also they make a counter rotating outdrive for twin application, was yours replaced and may be the wrong one used?

Yup. It's an old US marine type and in very poor condition. I am going to change to a mercury gen ii type with new cables. I think that should work ok.

I did not know Maxum used the US Marinre units, Bayliner did and yep junk.

Mine came with a Quicksilver 3000 and works fine 20 years latter. There are good aftermarket options as well such as Morse.
