Does anyone know the throttle assembly that Morse used before having the Neutral interlock? Year is '87. Looks just like the MV2 series. I took mine apart and linkage blew all over the place and I'm concerned about putting it back together. Here are some photos:

If anyone has a manual or knows anything about this, I'd appreciate any help.
Thanks.

Here is what Skidim has ot say about the MV2 / MV3


MV3 CONTROL (http://skidim.com/prodinfo.asp?number=MV3)
Competition Ski Boat Version (no safety switch) forward cable entry.
The MV2 is no longer manufactured by Teleflex and this is their ski boat replacement. It will cover the old mounting hole but the 3 screw holes are different.

I remember this old version and as far as I know, it is no longer available...

Not sure that this would work (says "single mv"), but looks similar. I've used the MV3 on a 98 MC and it is a fine throttle handle. But I know the temptation to stay original.

Thanks guys ...That's what I thought. Was hoping to find an old dusty service manual. I'll just wing it and see if I can figure it out using the force. Otherwise looks like a new one.

Thanks for the reply.

page 10 shows the exploded view of your control. might help with figuring out where the pieces go?

Thanks,
That's about the best I could have hoped for. I just hope that it hooks up essentially the same as mine without the neutral interlock.

So, did I read lubricate with white lithium grease???? Mine was all gummed up with old crusty dried grease...so actuation of everything was almost binding.

Just this past weekend I cleaned it all during this time verified it was the controls not the cables nor the shifting mechanism. (everything is smooth except the controls). After cleaning it was smoother but still a bit sticky...

But before I grease it; I want to find out the proper lubrication...

I'm rebuilding mine also, and would like to know the answer to this. When I pulled mine apart it was packed with an amber colored grease. Any suggestions on what kind of grease that was?

As long as the parts are clean, I would lubricate them with the same marine grease I use everywhere else on my MasterCraft. This is not a high stress location for the grease. You are looking for a little lubrication and plenty of corrosion protection.

There are probably more failures due to grease incompatibility than other causes (again, in this location I would not expect problems). If you stick to the same marine grease for everything on your boat and trailer you will be fine.

Google "grease compatibility" and you can really get yourself confused.

Does anyone know if the mahogany shift know that skidim sells will work on a 2001 PS 209? If so, what is involved in changing it.......does it simply involve unscrewing the old one and screw the new one on? Don't wanna hijack the man's thread, but seems like a logical place to ask and keep this on alive!

It will fit the Morse MV3 for sure. Those knobs are meant as replacement for the CC throttle knobs. I believe CC uses/used Teleflex. However, I have borrowed the topper from a morse to use temporarily on my Teleflex and it was the same size. I have the mahogony one from Skidim on my boat.

Pretty sure, yes.

It says the threads are 3/8-24. Get a 3/8-24 nut and if it fits, the knob will too. One thing, the size of the mahogany knob they are selling is much larger than the original.

Yes, they are oblong.

I think on the morse, only the top half of the knob comes off. ICBW.

It came with the boat. I had to replace the one on my old 205 though. I think I either bought it from my local CC dealer or online. I think the brand they sell at overtons is the same. But Seaworthy brand might work, too.

This bottom picture saved my bacon! I took my interior out to get redone but failed to take a picture of how the throttle was set up.

Good old Teamtalk saved the day again!!!!
