  • merc. controls question

    Went to hook up Tims newer(2000) 30 this afternoon and guess what?

    The throttle action is backwards on the 2000 compared to his older

    (1989) 25 horse. The wire harness was the same and the gear action was correct. why would merc. do this and any ideas on a easy recovery.??? I took his controll unit apart and it is not switchable I dont think. Arrrrg.####@@$$%. dave.

    I'm not up on all the Merc stuff, but I've read before that you have to disassyamble the control and turn the bellcrank around or something like that.

      Well the answer to this delima is this, Seems Merc changes there minds about every 10-15 years on this subject of throttle action(push vrs. pull) Acording to a Merc. mechianic there is no way to change or retrofit the controlls from this last generations engines to todays units.[!] Sure enough I took the unit apart and the bell crank is riveted togather. So I bought a used unit from back in the late 70;s or early 80's it hooks up fine and has the right action.

      Go figure. I think its mercs way to sell a few 300 dollar controll boxes.[}] BTW Wolfs sold me the used merc. control for 50 bucks. [] dave.
