    Throtle Cable setting

    I'm still having idle issues on tick over in or out of water

    I've tried taking the filter off and lookking at the throtle butterflys.

    But if I make the cable tighter the butterflys don't shut all the way back closed they sit higher, I'm guessing they should go back as far as possible like if the cable weren't connected

    am I doing this right or should they sit a little open has any one gout a pic of how there cable rocker arm sits and the butterfly position when the throtle is not touched???

    Thanks
    neil

    As long as the butterflies return to the idle stop screw, you're good. Normally you want just a touch of slack on the throttle, just to make sure it's fully retracted

    Try taking the cable off and seeing how it sits and then put it back on and see if they close the same way.. maybe unscrew the idle screw so its not touching and do it. then readjust your idle once your happy with it closing..

    The throttle should snap easily and close together.. check for binding in the little circle where the cable goes on. mine was bent and held the cable and would let go at wot.. not a good thing there,, could of stuck wot!. I put a different one on and it fixed it.

    you also might want to check the oil pump rod. disconnect it and make sure the thottle returns ok. had teat happen to me on my 95 slt. the oil pump was binding and sticking.

    play around with the adjusting nuts at both ends , you want the butter flys to be at the lowest point but i dont think you want any slack since that might lead to the carbs not opening up the full 90-95% as they usaully are set from the factory

    i hope my finger throttle doesnt give me this much trouble .

    the bottom screw is the adjustment for taking up slack and the top nut is for tightening it all up after its all adjusted.. good luck!
