Thumbs up Yea it Works

Well turns out that the cable was the same length, but a little different in design. So I loosened the mount and moved both ends to the center holes then tightened the mounts. Now I have about 100 degrees movement from stop to full throttle which is perfect.

With an old boat like mine I was so happy to find a new cable that fit I didnít take the time to check out the small details. Anyway, will feel a little better maneuvering around marinas with the throttle not being so sensitive.

That being said I appreciate your help you really pointed me in the right direction, should make this weekend on the bay less trouble free.
