3-9.2. CONTROL UNIT AND LINKAGE - MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS.
The engine control unit serves three functions. The first and main function is to provide a
disconnect at the engine so that the throttle or clutch may be operated from the engine room independently of
the control in the pilothouse. Operation from the engine room is accomplished by pulling out the manual
disconnect pin and twisting it 90 degrees. The engine may then be operated by the manual control knob
provided for this purpose.
The second function of the unit is to provide a means of varying the stroke of the control cable
to suit the stroke requirements of the lever being operated. This is accomplished by changing the length of the
engine control lever. This lever is connected to the throttle lever or clutch lever on the engine by means of a
connecting rod and ball joints.
The third function of the unit is to provide vertical entry and a fastening point for the PUSH-
PULL control cable.
If a control cable is to be replaced, order by stock number and cable length.
