That's correct, I've found the manual for the controls and it's in front of me.

No misled, my misunderstanding.

So, Nos has just proved it looks OK.

What happens when you push the lever? What moves where? (or not, as the case may be!)


I have the nagging feeling you may be about to find out what the inside of a control box look like.... There are plenty of little plastic bushes in there. Once they all wear things don't quite travel as far as they should.

Mine was as loose as a <comparison removed to prevent bilging> , but a set of replacement bushes (about a fiver or so about 5 years ago?) later and it's as good as new.

Best go find a screwdriver, a digital camera & a big sheet of paper / card to lay the bits out on - it's an intersting jigsaw puzzle in there..... (But not too bad if you are methodical & careful when you dismantle it)

I'll attach the whole reassembly instructions for the 703, you'll probably need them.


<erm...actually, it'll take me a day to do that, so here's an exploded diagramme instead.

Also park right outside Mackay marine (yammy dealer) every morning.

This might help. Nice pics.

Yamaha 703 Control- converting pull to push

The fact that you're reading this is probably because you find yourself in the same boat (wow-bad pun) as me; having a Yamaha 703 that moves the throttle the wrong direction! I bought a new Yamaha 4 stroke outboard to replace my older 2 stroke Yamaha and figured that since I stayed with the same brand, everything would all plug and play together nicely. Unfortunately, somewhere in Yamaha outboard evolution, they decided that their engine throttles should move in the opposite direction of how they used to; the carb linkage on my new outboard is pushed by the cable to open the throttle while on my older Yamaha, the cable pulled the throttle open. And that's how my 703 control worked.

Okay, we've figured that much out. But the 703 is used everywhere and has been for years; it must be a simple switch inside the 703 control to use it either way, push or pull, right? Nope.

The Yamaha 703 is MADE either way, the only outside difference being a sticker on the bottom that says either "PUSH THROTTLE" or "PULL THROTTLE". I never saw the sticker until I read about it online and bent over to look for it.

Looking at this I think I have found my problem, my throttle at the outboard end, is pull and my remote is set to push, I guess that would explain why when the throttle cable is attached at the outboard end the lever has to be forward to get the cable end on at controller and then pull back to move the throttle and obviously this will just not work with the gears, I now do not know if I am happy or sad.

At least you know what the problem is.

I think the pull 703 boxes aren't very common so you're probably better off fixing the one you have.

New ball game that it turns out the control box never did work. post# 35 is what you have to do but it still will not work until you flip the free acceleration disc. Surprised it doesn't mention it. Remember your dicking about with the throttle here so be very careful when you rivet together...
