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.

                you might need a different graphics program. It's clear for me. My controls look like this, found this pic on ebay...except I'm missing the button that releases the throttle to neutral to give it just throttle without putting it in gear. I have to push on this sharp pointy rod to get it to go in. Wish I could find that button...

                getting late

                Later!

                  Thank you. Do you have any more diagrams. I just acquired a 50 hp 1983 Mariner that needs some work and your diagram saved me days of frustration and my last few hairs on my head. Thanks again

                    Do you have a s/n or model number from that control box in post # 8?

                        All,

                        So far I've been unable to locate a button for that remote. I'm also in search of a 4 wire tilt trim harness. There was one on ebay awhile back but I was unable to bid prior to close. On another note, I have located someone who can manufacture tilt trim lines to length. This project needed new cables so yesterday I was adjusting the idle point while installing the new ones and it appears the fuel pumps on the Walbro carbs gave up the ghost. Thank goodness for ebay, parts are on the way, decided to throw a water pump kit at it too. I'll try to post pics when I start on that job.

                        I don't think I have any other .jpgs, maybe a few .pdf's somewhere though... I'll try to convert when I get a chance.

                        Nice Day out!

                        Joe

                              It's not a very large picture but if you put your mouse over it and right click, then select "Save As" another window will pop up and it will probably be set for "My Pictures" but you can change this to "Desktop" if you want. Click Save and it will be where you chose to save it. Go there, select the picture and when it comes up, it will have + and - signs at the bottom and you can keep pressing the = sign to make it as big as you want. Gets fuzzy pretty quick though.
