Mercury 115 Throttle Controls

Hi again,

After having finally completed an ever growing refit of my new rib (one thing led to another) we now have it all back together, all lines running neatly under the deck, new seating/steering/electronics etc etc. One thing remains. The throttle. It was a bit notchy and horrible to use before, so whilst I was taking the cables out for the refit, I decided to take the whole thing apart give it a clean/grease etc and reassemble. Its no better.

Do I need a new throttle? Have I put it together correctly? The throttle is controlling a Mercury Mariner 115 4 stroke. Having run the wiring under the deck, it is now a very difficult and long winded job to get the control loom out if the throttle needed replacing. Are the throttles different from year to year? As I am thinking one option is to chop the old loom in the console and rejoin to the new control loom. Are the wires the same colours?

Any advice on this would be great.

Thanks again.

p.s attached a couple of work in progress pics.

Please what EVER you do DONT CUT A MAIN engine wiring LOOM and try join it especially if you running it under the deck of a boat . Thats my advice as I have seen so many problems occur with parts on the engine shorting out and even engines catching fire due to a bad loom being joined . ( AND that join will be a perfect attack for the SALT WATER)Has your engine got a BIG black DEUTCH connector on it . ?? If so your box will need to be the new style one with the other end also being the big DEUTCH connector . Cheers
