Quicksilver pull to push conversion

I have searched the net, but I cannot seem to find how to convert a quicksilver control box from pull to throttle to push to throttle.

Any ideas anyone?

Cheers

Lee

You cant convert a control box, they are all push to go forward and pull to go back.

But you can mount a box backwards which gives pull to go. Boxes are available for either port or starboard mounting.

I have replaced a 20hp mariner for a newer 25hp mariner. The old engine was a push to throttle set up, the new engine is a pull to throttle. The control box can be altered to work with the newer engine, but not sure how you convert the morse box.

I think the problem is his old mariner was a Yamaha built one, so has the Yamaha control box configuration and the new ones mercury/mariner so it'll be a different box configuration
