Need to add friction to Teleflex engine control?
I have a Teleflex single lever control, CH 1308, controlling a Yanmar 3GM30 on my Marshall 22. It is a 1985 item, no longer in production. It has low hours, little wear, works smoothly, but has a problem. It will not hold the throttle setting as it gets pushed to higher speeds. Rather, the throttle slowly slides back down to a mid-level RPM range, and you have to continually push it back every couple of minutes to run at say 3/4 throttle. I can't see any place to adjust the friction of the control handle, and the topic is not mentioned in the installation instructions for the control. Is there perhaps a way to add friction on the engine end of the cable, at the throttle? I have heard that this is not an unknown problem, but haven't heard of a fix. The boat is new to me this year, and I don't know if it has always been this way or not. Thanks,
