Re: Yanmar 2GMF, throttle return spring too strong
You can make your own with a split piece of small hose.. firmly clamp it on the outer sheath with a hose clamp, and lightly clamp the other end on the sliding part of the cable.. adjust the latter tension for the friction you need.
You can do this at either end, whichever is most accessible.
