Re: Yanmar stop cable: upgrade to electronic button?
My cable rusts and starts to bind if I don't grease it. I completely remove it, clean off rust, lightly grease it, and put it all back together.
The panel on my boat has been replaced at least once because the friction on the stop cable put too much load on the panel. On the last replacement (the only one that I've done) I also put a backing plate on the cable.
