Hello, I have a 2005 30HP four stroke MFS30A. It is currently hooked up to remote steering and controls. I would like to convert it to a tiller handle. Would it be possible to use the new multi function tiller handle on this outboard?

I am having a heck of time figuring out how parts 16 (friction piece) and 17 are suppose to fit.
Lay 1 upside down, install 16 flat side against the underside of 1, there must be a cut on 1, adjust screw 18 rests there, pass 10 till exits through small left hole, once there secure right side with 14-15. Install 9, 11, 12, 13 at the left side. If don't need to lock the throttle grip, don't install16-17.

Happy Boating

It doesn’t seem like these are the right parts?
The tiller handle seems much wider than it should to install the white friction grip and the rounded adjust screw as should be positioned. Did you ordered Tiller Handle part : 3R3S630110 ? The one delivered seems to correspond to a higher HP tiller motor ?

Hello, Yes that is the part I ordered. I was thinking the friction piece and screw were for a smaller outboard. It seems this model wasn't very popular. It would have been nice to buy the the whole thing as a unit. The service manual is complete garbage as well.

The 30A was carbed, whereas the 30B and C are EFI... The A is obsolete. I have worked on lots of them. Here is the diagram from the Factory parts catalog:

Those new parts should be assembled as seen in pic....Try to assemble same way. The posted pic corresponds to a M30A motor, just wanted to have the overall idea.
