Very 'smart' of you
Because believe it or not it happened to me last year when I had to change my control box I could not syncronise both cables I eventually got the gear ok but i had to send for an engineer for the throttle and it is still a litle 'off' centre before the button depresses properly for throttle only. Even with the foregoing the arm itself was slack and with vibration the throttle use to move back and I lost revs. So I was speaking from experience and was only offering it as a maybe and if it help the guy then good. I never offer anything to score points or to look all knowing that I certainly am not and I am the first to acknowledge.
