What a response

Thanks for all the replies. Didn't explain problem properly first. cables are all ok. The problem is in the outboard itself, (yoke) as one reply correctly described it. I have tried the heat and WD40, freed for a while and then went tight. Am looking at a complete stripdown, unless any person has bright idea.
Great community, Cheers

How old are the engines and what sort of state are they in apart from the siezures? 1200 still sounds a lot if it's just a strip/cleanout/regrease but I can see why it's that much.At boatyard prices that's not very much work on each engine assuming they come apart easily!

Course, I could always sell you a rather good sr4
Need spares,consoles,consumables,hire,training or even a new boat?
