Is there any chance that when you swapped the handle around that it was maybe in the "full throttle" position when you took it off and you've accidentally put it back in the neutral position?

I have made sure it was in neutral when i first connected up the cables, but no good, and then adjusted them up to as far as they will go both ways, still no good .

The box will always be in the same direction relative to the boat no matter which side it's mounted.

In the pic of the control box, it isn't in neutral, but the lever is. I'm not looking at the motor yet, it's the second step after making sure the controls work. Something's wrong.

Ok, best start from the beginning.

Disconnect the cables at both the box and at the motor so they aren't attached in any way to either the control box OR the motor.
First, put the handle on the correct side of the box (IIRC the neutral detent won't work if you swap sides)
Make sure the neutral detent works.
Make sure the fast idle lever will move when the neutral detent is engaged.

If you don't have both of them working, your positioning will be out and the controls won't work properly.

This should give you one cable mount in the dead centre,and the other should be all the way over one side.

Once it's like that and works, post a pic.

Yes - the handle needs removing and putting back on relative to the internals.

Yes, and IIRC, the neutral detent wont work if you put the handle on the wrong side.

OK going to put it all back as it was before and try that, was only putting it on that side as seemed to work out better with outboard,and keeping all cables on one side of the rib but i need to sort this out now its driving me nuts .

Putting the handle back on the other side as it is won't solve anything. I have one of these sat in front of me. I'll take the cover off in the morn and post some photos so it's makes sense. This is a very easy fix!
