Shift and Throttle Cable Installation to the Outboard

IMPORTANT: Install control cables to remote control and mount control before attaching control cables to outboard. Install throttle and shift cables to remote control and mount control as outlined in installation instructions which accompany the remote control.

NOTE: Attach shift cable to outboard first. Shift cable is the first cable to move when remote control handle is advanced from NEUTRAL position toward in-gear position.

IMPORTANT: Remote control cables must be the correct length. Sharp bends on too-short cables result in kinks. Too-long cables require unnecessary bends and/or loops. Both conditions place extra stress on the cables and control.


1. Slip cable retainer over the threaded metal end of control cables.

2. Push cable retainer onto control cables so that the pointed ends are on the top side of hole.

3. Rotate cable retainer 90° to position end of retainer over hole.

a - Retainer
b - Pointed ends
c - Hole

4. Install cable ties on control cables.

NOTE: Cable ties will prevent retainers from slipping off cables whenever cables are removed from engine.

5. Place end of control cables on anchor pins and lock in place with retainers.

a - Cable tie
b - Pin


1. If remote control has a NEUTRAL lock release, secure the release in the depressed position using a piece of tape. The true NEUTRAL detent can now be located.
