Then position everything correctly and clamp the plate to the rod. The throttle cable should be a type "33" cable.

If you google "Yanmar 4JH engine" you can find a picture of this type of cable anchor arrangement.

The stop cable is a simple pull cable with a "T" handle on one end and the engine stop lever on the other end. It can be anchored to the same sliding plate as the throttle cable.

I am not familiar with this specific engine model. And thanks for the clarification. I was having trouble figuring out precisely the location of the morse flange, and the one above the levers as I said didn't seem in the correct position, it also explains the odd L shaped rod. Thx. What do you reckon as to the flange above the levers?

Re: Hooking up perkins

Okey guys, got it. One more question about stop control lever. Im not sure if you can see it from the picture but its orientation is very stange i thing. Its position is rather horizontal so i really dont know how to lead the morse cable to it. Thirtle cable will be easy, using the black metal rod. But stop lever i dont know. I would have to lead somehow around the engine but the cable is rather rigid and very hard to bend. Any suggestions?

Re: Hooking up perkins

My next question is about raw water intake system. See attached picture. There is a T joint with open port between water pump">raw water pump and engine cooling system - what should I attach here? Some sort of anti siphon breaker?

I did some brief research on internet but im confused. Some friends told me its not neccessary as far as one part of the exhaust hose is 12 inches above water line, which i have. But to me exhaus hose is something different then raw water intake system, right?

My old volvo penta did not have any siphone breaker. But Id like to do proper job and have my new perkins installation safer.

How should i do in the simplest and cheapest solution possible? Remember im in guatemala.
