Morse Marine Universal Control

I have a 1990 Suzuki 2 stroke 6 horse outboard on my Santanna 20. The motor is operated from the cockpit via an aftermarket Morse Marine side mount control. Essentially all it does is run the throttle and put the motor in forward and reverse. I still start it and turn it off with the pull cord and kill switch on the motor.

The motor isnt that old but has been giving me a lot of issues the last couple of years. I am probably going to replace it this spring but I am concerned how newer motors will work with this particular Morse product. Is it universal enough to work with any new 6 horse motor or do I need to stay with the suzuki brand. Or are all new motors so different that none of them will work. Is anyone familiar with these univeral controls, is there an adaption kit? Morse's website wasnt real helpful.

So evidently nobody knows about Morse Controls. Does anyone know if small outboards are all universal when it comes to throttle controls and shifting in and out of reverse and forward?

tommays will become famous soon enough
There may be a difference in shift lever and throttle travel between motors

If there is to much TRAVEL it would force the motor into GEAR and if there is not ENOUGH travel it would not go fully into gear ,it needs to be correct

Inside the control were the cables connect there should be extra holes that will allow more or less travel to suit the different brands
