I need to replace the throttle cable from my pedestal
to the Yanmar
1GM and have done a fair amount of reading on this site and figure I have enough information to get started.
One thing I want to fix is how the throttle lever operates. Currently idle is when the throttle is fully forward, and then to increase RPM
the lever is pulled back towards the operator. This is backwards to any other boat and it makes sense to change it, but how? I just purchased this boat and it baffles me that it has been operating this way for over 28 yrs.
There must be some sort of linkage available to attach to the engine
to reverse the directional throw. I don't really have the mechanical expertise to fabricate something and willing to purchase
whatever is required.
Here are a couple of pics looking down into the pedestal
with the throttle lever in the full forward/idle position, and a schematic of the throttle cable on the Yanmar
