Just bought a new boat, 1986 Formula 206 Spider with Merc 350/Alpha one. I like the boat a lot but i really don't like the stock Quicksilver shifter/throttle. I am wondering how hard it would be to switch this unit out for Gaffrig or Livorsi controls like the one in this link:
I have never changed these controls before so I am wondering how big of a project I am getting myself into. I know the shift interruptor switch is in there. There don't appear to be any trim switches on the current shifter, but there will be on the new one. Are there some instructions that would help to install new controls? Basically, how involved is this project, and is it something that can be done without help?
Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
