Flybridge Throttles

Postby Terra Nova » September 8th, 2015, 1:32 pm

I have a 1988 3207 Aft Cabin Carver. The Starboard throttle on my flybridge keeps slipping so I have to continuously hold it to keep it in position. Does anybody know if there is a way to adjust the cable to increase the tension? The flybridge is connected to the lower helm but I couldn't locate a connection point on those controls.

There should be an adjustment screw on the throttle control itself to increase or decrease the amount of effort required to move it. You want a happy medium between tight enough so it doesn't spring back on you and loose enough that it can still be easily moved.

Perfect! Do you know where that screw would be? I still can't find it. Would it be on the lower helm or on the flybridge helm where the issue is?

It should be on the sides of the throttle and shifter bodies around the arch of the lever housing.

Thanks - I will take a peek in the spring. Winter is coming up here in Canada
