  • 6HP Tiller to Remote Controll, Cable Ends and Steering Questions Inside.

    Please ignore the spelling error on the title, I cant edit it.

    So I picked up a new aluminum hull today, and I want to hook up my 6HP to a remote steering.

    What kind of cable and/or ends do I want?

    The old clip style, or the new U-Shapped clamp style?
    Or does it depend on my controller?
    ...or do they both work the same anyway?

    I plan on getting an older single lever controller.
    Some day, I plan on getting dual 6HP's back there.
    So, the plan was to buy another single lever controller, and bolt the 2 together.
    Ebay has a lot of dual controllers for sale, pretty inexpensive. After buying 2 controllers, looks like I would be better off buying 1 dual.
    and please excuse my ignorance here, but it doesn't quite look like the cheep mid-80's dual controllers have a warm-up lever?

    I know the 6HP's steering setup was never meant for duals, so am I just dreaming here, or is it possible?
    Ideas for single cable hookups?
    I'm guessing its just a bar that connects the 2 together, then the steering rod attaches in the middle?
    ...but how does that work when tilting the engines up, would they have to go up at the same time?

    They did offer accessories to do what you are trying to do, what year engine are you working on, model number?
    The duel lever controls did not have a warm up lever, you just advanced the throttle lever a little bit to get a higher idle for warm up.

      1970 6HP

      I guess my question is more based on the type of connectors and clips to get.

          To begin with, you need a 380293 remote control adapter kit to attach cables to your 6hp. Shown in the attached picture. As for steering, it depends on what type you have. The 1970 factory kit was for cable & pulleys system. Also shown. If you plan to use push-pull cable, it gets more complicated.

          There are a variety of remote controls that can be made to work. The simplest is the four-lever control specifically made for the motors. See other pictures.
