My 1979 Evinrude 35hp (model 35953A) is currently using a Simplex control, but the throttle friction is worn out and the throttle will not stay in place. I'm tired of hand cramps and apologizing to skiiers (yes, we ski and wakeboard behind it!) for sudden chops to idle.
Is there a single-handle control that will work with this outboard? If so, what should I be looking for on eBay? I figure the single-handle controllers are plentiful.
Or, does anyone have good tips and parts sources for refurbishing my simplex controller?
