Replacing Throttle Control
My 2003 Maxum 2700 has a Merc/Quicksilver "Commander 3000" throttle control. Last summer it got stuck in neutral (throttle only). I took it apart and put it back together and it worked fine until this weekend, when it happened again.
At this point I am thinking about replacing the control rather than repairing it again, particularly since I have never figured out exactly what goes wrong. And, it is apparently a common problem with these controls. They no longer make the Commander 3000, although I think I can find a new or used one. But, I am also thinking about getting either the next generation control (Commander 4000) or even an aftermarket Teleflex.
Has anyone replaced their throttle control? If so, what did you replace with? Did you replace cables too, or just the control? Did you have to cut a new hole? Any advice?
