Help Tip: If you have a question that has not been answered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum members.

Below are some additional forum policies in hopes of all iboats members will follow, Thank you.

1. Please do not reply to old threads or hijack existing threads. Old threads of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

2. Old threads should be considered archives and used for reference only. Please do not reply to them.

3. Do not take over someone elseís thread (aka hijack) with your own question, even if it is similar. If you have a question that has not been covered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the thread is over 30 days old, send the OP a PM, he may not even visit the forums any longer, or may not notice your question in the old thread.

5. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum helpers that may not even notice your question when itís posted at the end of someone elseís thread. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to threads that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any thread that remains inactive for that long should be considered "dead". It is especially confusing when there is an entirely new question posted to an old thread.

7. Posting at the end of any thread is considered to be hijacking the original posters thread which in turn subjects the thread to be closed if it continues to happen thus not making it fair to the original poster in the future had for some reason he/she needed to return for additional information or provide an update of the problem solved which is always welcomed within a reasonable amount of time frame.

8. Please note that you should see a red banner pop up near the bottom of each inactive thread asking you not to reply to old threads. The Red banner will read: Please note this thread has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new thread.

Thank you all in advance for doing your part in helping iboats run a smooth ship.

  • Stiff throttle - How do you disassemble an OMC single lever remote control?

    1991 Evinrude 48 side mount throttle lever.

    My throttle lever is stiff. I want to take the remote control apart and relube everything. I took the 2 philip screws off on the port side but cant seem to get the unit apart. It comes in 2 pieces and joins in the middle.

    Are there other screws or things I need to do to open it up?

    not too sure about your exact control, but most had 3 screws and the lever needs to be off as well, as the bolt that holds it in, also goes holds the case together.

      Remove it from the boat and remove the screws that hold the halves together. Also remove the screw that holds the handle on. It may be Allen or Torx head. Loosen the handle screw a turn or two, then give it a light whack with a hammer and punch..that will knock the handle off the shaft--then take the screw on out.

        Remove from the boat first. Are there not 3 phillips screws holding the face?

          I cant remove the entire unit from the boat because the mounting screws are under the casing.

          I only have 2 screws on the port side and one screw on the starboard side.

          I guess what yall are saying is the key is removing the allen screw that goes through the handle.

              Just wondering... Does this remote have the friction adjustment screw? The one on mine is just under the key.

                You have me confused (which is not difficult). The two phillips screws in the picture are what holds it to the boat. They should have nuts behind the fiberglass panel. In your first post, you said that you removed them. Then you say that you can't remove them because you can't get at them.

                All I can say is that somebody got behind the panel to install the nuts when they bolted it to the boat, assuming they are not just woodscrews. In order to get the control apart, you have to access the 3 screws on the backside, plus the handle screw, which means that it has to come off the boat first.
