Yamaha outboards use 33c cables. Mercury motors use a Merc specific cable.

So, to use Matt's Mercury box with a Yam based Mariner, you have 2 options:

1. Use 'hybrid' cables with a Merc control box end and a 33c fitting at the outboard end. These are commercially available and known as Mariner or 'Yamahariner' cables.

2. Use an adaptor kit (around 20) to convert 33c cables to fit the Merc control box.

Or you could use a 33c type control box, eg Yamaha, Soozook, Tohatsu, Honda, or an after-market control box, eg Teleflex suited to 33c cables.

Hope that helps.

Sorry, I had overlooked the fact that your motor is a Yam-based Mariner, in which case, my Merc cables are no good to you.

I do have a set of 33c adaptors here which would allow my Teleflex box to be used with 33c cables, although I don't think I have any 33c cables in 12 foot length.

re control box

hi d
thanks for that info, i have so many options at the mo, its now got to the point i dont know which to go for, i have been offerd a yamaha 701 right hand box which was what come originally with the outboard i brought, but the cables were siezed and it was a left hand side box, no good for me my steering wheels on the right. ( so this seems to be the one i should go for )

also been offered the one you have and also a couple of quicksilver 2000 ones, square looking lever type( the one i did like the look off )

Then matts one which does look very nice, i was tempted to go for this one has when i read about it it said its for murcury/Mariner, and with my outboard being a mariner ( on the stamp ) but yes Yamaha based, i was thinking this is the one i want, but from what you say about the cables and not knowing if its a pull to open im not sure. but i do like the style of it and if i can get cables easly im still tempted, oh and not to far away from me.

what do you reckon

As standard, the Merc boxes are pull to open. Not sure whether this particular type can be re-configured as 'push to open', but most can.
