Correct on the handle unbolting from the back, usually 13mm socket. Plus one for don't lose any bits (don't ask) but things tend to move about a bit when you take the covers of. Had an intermittent short on my electrics this year down to a wire rubbing in there.

Thanks Very much Peter that's a great help. Wish I could do it on a bench rather than on the side of the boat in a horrid wet boat yard!! I'm shocked to see such crap quality connections inside! Though there would be a decent quality loom coupler.

mine has two fairly short wiring 'tails' from the box - that then plug into two multi-connectors inside the console.
You can make out the micro-switch in Peter's pic - the small actuator button fits into a detent on the main 'gear' wheel - its kinda spring loaded there and is very easy to sheer off when closing the control box - if this happens your engine will not start as the engine will think its still in gear - so be careful

the micro switch in the merc/mar control box is a in-gear start protection, ie wont start if the lever is in any gear possition.Ah control boxs there is nothing like sitting on the tube of a rib in the pouring rain, a cup of coffee by your side , soaking wet , water dripping of the end of your fag, (thats a cigarrette to you Americans)the customer gone and all that is left is playing dodge the seagull crap, happy days!

Summed up perfectly from what it seems Al, I'm learning quickly! Not a fag in sight here though, american or british version. I don't partake in either.
