    Default Throttle / Transmission Cable Lubrication

    Have a 1989 Searay Sedan Bridge with twin inboards and just the flybridge station. Can the cables be lubricated?. For the last couple years the throttle cables have gotten progressively more resistance. The transmission cables were silky smooth but this year the starboard cable is getting a little sticky feeling.
