Converting the 14' Tracker Grizzly 1448 tiller steer to remote steer! 25 HP Yamaha.
Ok, Have the center console, a small Todd model. Perfect fit for this boat. Have a seat mounted in the center, wires run to center console for lights, fishfinder etc.
Steering, wheel, steering cable, etc. installed. Remote attachment kit, on the way (converts the throttle controls from the tiller handle to cables.)
But, I'll be darned if I can find a good throttle assembly to put on this console. Ill admit, the console was a bit smaller than I expected, but I do think it is the right fit for the size of the boat. Looks good, enough room to move around etc. Plus, I already drilled holes in it so I can't return it. Good enough reason to keep it.
That Grizzly may be 14' but it's a big 14! Plus, like I said the console is quite small. It actually fits the boat well. it's barely wider than the steering wheel!
Looks like you have a typical Starboard Gunwale mount assembly. That won't fit on my console, it's what I have and am returning. Theyd o make assembly's that have hidden cables that come out the side that mounts to the console, compact models that will fit this application, I just need some help finding the right one for my little console.
Oh, one more thing. I do not need trim, or any electrical on this assembly. It is a pull start, and will remain a pull start. No kill switch (I am sitting close enough to the engine to use the factory tether). So just need the most basic assembly but preferably one that is somewhat compact. Which seems to be easy since I see a few o this site to purchase that will work, but I don't even know the right questions to ask!
The problem with the top mount is the amount of "stuff" below the mounting surface. About 8" Like this one. I like the looks of it. Classic stainless look, but no go without some serious manufacturing of housing.
Ok, for anyone trying the same project, here is what I came up with.
Throttle lever assembly, will work on the right side of a center console, per the info given by tech support at Uflex. Cables are inside the console and can exit the unit straight down to route through the floor. Which is perfect. http://www.iboats.com/Side-Mount-Sin...view_id.197589
