Yamaha control boxes

I was wondering if anyone know of a decent place to get a new control box by mail order, I have searched the web and they all seems much of a muchness. any suggestions please new or second hand for a Yamaha 55 electric start. I have seen a complete control on the Yamaha web site for 160. is that a good price

Many thanks

Lee

Lee you might find one on e bay, however you need to check two things, the direction of the throttle cables are the right push / pull direction and how many pins there are on the main cable. There are 7, 10 and 13 pin variations.

The alternative is as Jizm has suggested Bill highman, he isn't cheap but he does do a general throttle box without electrics for about 80 that will fit any engine.

Many thanks guys, I am getting to my wits end with the control box I have on, push back on the lever it shots forwards. I have beening trying for months to sort it out now at my wits end so decided to fit a new one and start from scratch.

Thanks again

Sounds like you may have a control box set up for a counter rotating engine: ( I have one) that is if it goes forward when placed in reverse. Swop the cables around to make it operate in the right direction.

Its is a straight forwards Yamaha 55 , I can see the thinking behind swapping the cables ,which I have done a few times, ok for gear , but the engine still revs moving the throttle lever in the engine by it being pulled for wards, but I will give it another go see if I am doing anything wrong there. Thanks
