Hey everybody, Got a new to me 1994 PS 190 about a month ago. Absolutly love it!!! There is a black button on the transom side of the throttle handle I have no idea what it is. Does anybody have a clue what I'm talking about? I will try to post a pic tomorrow if I can. I would sure like to know what that is if anybody knows. Thanks!

I have that throttle, and to the right there is a little black button. From looking at that picture i'm wondering if it was something someone added.??

Nope, was only an option on the 93 year model.

Correct. The flames shoot out about 4 or 5 feet. Kinda like the old school cars did on the movie Grease.

Almost named the boat "Grease Lightning" because of these cool flames. I'm sure that you could get the upgrade for less than $20 + shipping.

Kill switch but the lanyard is missing? It looks like a little button. Did I just walk alone into a very dark room?I have that throttle, and to the right there is a little black button. From looking at that picture i'm wondering if it was something someone added.??

With out a pic I wouldnt know. I know the 91-93 throttles are the same. but the 94 might have the lanyard there instead of on the dash.

Do you have a kill switch on the dash?

ok, new question now. I really need help with this one. Two weeks ago at the lake the starter sounded like it was getting bogged down and didnt want to start. So this weekend we took the starter out and replaced it. now the boat will turn over great but it will not start. We have compression and a spark the pistons are moving and i can see the injectors pumping in fuel. also replaced the spark plugs, dist cap and rotor. If anyone has a sugestion I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks

Don't know your solution off hand but if I'm not mistaken, the starter needs to be a marine based one rather than an automotive one.

Hi Baseman. Maybe I am crazy, but you have a question about the "button" on the throttle control. That is the kill switch that typically has a lanyard attached. If you can "see" the button, then perhaps it does not have the clip/lanyard attached, which it should to be able to operate the boat. THAT might explain why it doesn't run?

I'm sure that's what it is. However I felt behind button today and there is nothing attached to it. And the boat ran last week. I think the previous owner bypassed the switch.

My Tristar kill switch, was by-pass.
