                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

                    G3;

                    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

                          Is item 17 the one you are after?

                              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.
