Righthanded 703 control box

I am looking for a righthanded yamaha 703 control box (no ptt). I have the wiring loom so it's just the box I am looking for.

I have a left handed one in reasonable condition for swap or sale if anyone is interested?

Not sure about that specific model but on most of the yammy units you can normally convert from left to right by dismantling and re assembling the other way around

Sorry maybe it was a poor explanation. The control unit I have just acquired ( 703) needs to be mounted on the left hand side of the console, but my current control box (old ultraflex thingy!) and cabling is on the right hand side so I wondered if there was a different version that could be mounted on the right hand side?

If I can reverse the 703 I have that would be great but I can't quite get my head around that....

Undo the 13mm bolt in the middle of the box that holds the handle on and put it on the other side

You'll need to pop the cover off the middle of the lever to find the bolt... But yes, they are ambidextrous!

sort of ....the bolt is on the 'back' of the unit - so you can leave the round cover on the throttle handle. Take the bolt out the back, unscrew the plastic 'semi-circle' on the body ( by undoing the two screws) and then swap the whole thing ( including semi cricle bit) to the other side.

You may also need to swap sides on the plastic bit on the bottom that covers the trim switch wiring ....

I did it on the MacRIB on Sat

Thanks everyone, I am going to give it a go this evening once the small sticky fingers of my kids are away to bed!

Wish me luck I will try and take some photos in case there is anyone else as dull as me!

is this what you are looking to do? Or rather it sounds like somebody already did this and you need to go back.
