Yamaha Cable Connection

I am about to connect the engine controls on the Yamaha 50 and have one long and one short engine connector. Any ideas which one connects to gear/throttle linkage?

I will find out by trial and error but any advice would be welcome.

Cheers guys.

I couldn't tell you off the top of my head, but if you hold onto the throttle lever and move it from neutral to full throttle the first cable to move will be your gear selector, when this stops moving the second cable should start to move and this will be your throttle cable. I suspect that once laid inside the engine compartment they will only connect one way due to the length of the cables.

703 control box? If so, thinking back after I got it right the second time the long cable goes to the bottom link in the 703 box which if I remember right is the throatle. Best see what others say first

In my first post was making the assumption that the cables where already fitted to the control box. If they are not..... I can't help you other than connect everything up and give it a go...Trial and error style

Best take the prop off first. I emptied a 227 Litre tank in one go just buy starting the engine.
I think Gibbo was meaning the engine end.

Ha....Wasn't thinking that you would want the engine running first

You can go though the motions by just watching what happens at the engine end with the cover off.

Thanks guys,

I managed to get it sorted, it took a little time to get the adjustment right though.

John, after reading your little escapade a while ago (it stuck in my head), i was very conscious if it was out of gear before starting up.

That is what is great about forums you learn from other peoples experiences.

The boat is almost ready and will put some pictures on soon.

Cheers
