Throttle won't hold position!
I have a Beneteau 361 which has a Teleflex single arm throttle to control both forward/reverse transmission and throttle. Photo attached. Overall it works fine except it won't hold position where I want it. I want to run the engine around 2800 rpm for cruising and the engine runs up easily but when I remove my hand from the throttle it pulls back by itself. Only seems to hold around 2000 rpm. I've tried tightening the set screw at the base of the throttle arm and this didn't do any good, still slips. Is there another adjustment I can do or replace a friction plate or something or am I stuck replacing the whole assembly?
You will regret the things you did not do, more than the things you did.
Get out there!
