Yanmar 2GMF controls needed

Hi All...

Last night, while rushing to get out to a race, the throttle and shift controls for my Yanmar 2GMF broke apart. There was some bracket that held the control lines in place and it broke right off the rest of the assembly

As far as I can tell the control cables that go to the engine are fine, but the throttle and shift controls are beyond repair.

Any suggestions on what i should replace it with, ideally something that won't break the bank? Ideally, if there is a lever, I would like to remove when not in use so that the lines don't tangle in it.

Thanks...

jarcher -
If you can use Morse 33c cable, i have this posted on ebay....
eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices

I original purchased it to use on a Universal 5411, however, it won't work on my engine, and posted it on ebay for sale.

The CH2100P is for sailboats with round handle to lessen the tanglement issue.
I believe this will work with your engine.

Cheers - Kevin

Thanks Kevin, I may grab that. I have to make a decision today so I can get this repaired over the weekend, by Monday, so i may need something local.

I have been searching, and once I found what to search for I found a few options, but it seems I need to know what kind of control cables I have...

Nice boat Jim...i just checked out your site.

Knowing your control cable type is important and then go from there.
Replacing cable controls is expensive!

You are two day UPS ground.

Thanks!

Hm, two days means its probably too far for me to drive and fetch it, but what state are you in?

I'm thinking overnight would cost more than its worth.

I'll take a trip down to the boat shortly to see what I have for control cables, not that I would recognize them. Engines are not my thing.

No worries...
Check the outside cable cover for type/manufacturer and go from there.
