Throttle Control Problems;-(

We have a dual position control system for the Perkins motor on my motorsailor. Inside control has no problem, but the outside one (or cables?) is playing up...

It appears to be an Ultraflex B85 Side Mount Control. Drops into gear nicely and stays there, but if I gently edge the throttle forward, it now won't stay there there, but instead slowly moves back to idle! Once past a certain point (too far), it will stay put. It does this with gear either engaged or not.

This is a new issue that seemed to start quickly.

I've stripped, lubed and rebuild the controller, but it hasn't helped at all. When disconnected, both gear and throttle cables (Teleflex) move easily. No kinks or sharp bends.

I'm at a loss now, so any ideas would be MOST welcome.
