Engine throttle control
Installed a steering pedestal on my Pacific Seacraft Orion, nice new throttle and gear controls hooked up to the engine, a little Yanmar 2QM15. (replaced original tiller set-up) Ripped out the original Morse throttle and gear control mechanism c/w cables.
Now I finally understand what that little clamp was on the old throttle cable. I assume that it was squeezing the inner to create friction to prevent the spring on the engine from pulling the throttle back closed all the time.
Anyone got a better way of doing this as this seems to be such a counter-productive thing to do to brand new low friction cables!
