BAD IDEA shift/throttle

I have the Edson pull/pull system (no sheaves) installed in my 33'' Yorktown. I had to remove the entire system to rebuild the cockpit. When I reinstalled it I purchased the adapter from Edson so I could install the transmission/throttle control cables up to the pedastal. I had no trouble at all with installing the transmission/throttle cables or the pull/pull cables. But, the Yorktown has incredible access to both the engine compartment and the lazerette. Have you contacted Edson for advice? They have been most helpfull whenever I contacted them. You can reach Edson at 508-995-9711. Explain to them your problem and ask for advice. I think you will be pleasantly surprised with the amount of help you will receive. Hope this helps. Regards, Peter

Hi pjfsail,

Great to hear/see a Yorktown owner. I own a 39 Ft. Yorky Center Cockpit I just installed an Edson Pedestal w/ cable steering with speed/direction controls during
the install I sometimes wished I had bought the Pull/Pull, but all went well and I''m real happy with the end result. Beats the heck out of a hole in the middle of your cockpit. Yea, Edson was very helpful. We
do have a lot of room on Yorktown.

Golly Scrub, great to hear from you. Yes, heaps of room, lovely boat. I''d like to continue the conversation. We are WAY off topic here. Should we do a personal email? Or perhaps start a new thread on one of the forums. It would be good fun to have several other Yorktown owners jump in. Any ideas? Peter
