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 topics or hijack existing topics. Old topics of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

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

3. Do not take over someone elseís topic (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 topic of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the topic 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 topic.

5. By starting your own topic, 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 topic. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to topics that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any topic 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 topic.

7. Posting at the end of any topic is considered to be hijacking the original posters topic which in turn subjects the topic 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 topic asking you not to reply to old topics. The Red banner will read: Please note this topic has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new topic.

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

  • how to replace throttle cable

    How do you remove the throttle cable at the motor (1977 mercury 85hp)? I see there is some type of clip the throttle and shifter cables run through that i cannot get to release. I want to save some money and learn more by doing it myself but i'm feeling a little mentally retarded with this issue. I have the Seloc manual and do not see any mention of the retainer i'm talking about. By the way, should i post all my questions to a dedicated thread or doesn't it matter?

      You will then have to remve the cable unscrew it from the linkage then you will have to remove the throttle and disassemble where the cable goes in and detach the holding mechanism and remove the barrels there as well reinstall in reverse order

            Well that was simple and i found out the cable does work but it don't start to move till i move the lever about 1/3 of the way forward. Is this a characteristic of the Mercontrol or do i have a different problem...stretched cable...worn control? I took the control apart and made sure everything was like the pic in the manual. I took the control apart to check because i replaced the throttle lever previously.
