PP servo motor

All,

Going to start a new thread instead of trying to revive my old one.

The PP servo motor is yanking the throttle connection apart. It is pulling the cable through the brass nut. There is a brass ferrule that is crimped onto the end of the PP throttle cable that makes the connection with the regular throttle. The PP motor is yanking the cable hard enough to separate that connection. I've had to fix it twice using an small electrical crimp connector separated from its casing.

The connection will fail usually after one or two runs with the PP. So I'm assuming that PP servo motor puts more force on that connection versus operating the throttle manually.

1. Has anyone experienced this before?

2. How does the startup procedure work for the servo motor on the PP? Does it auto-tighten until it feels a certain amount of resistance, and then stops?

3. Does anyone know the size of the PP throttle cable? I'd like to buy an aluminum ferrule to crimp onto the end of the cable were it makes the connection with the boats throttle linkage. This will be a more permanent solution than the electrical crimps that I've been using, and hopefully will be tight enough to keep the connection from pulling apart again.

4. Will a system reset help?

Perfect Pass has very very good customer service.
E mail them and you'll get a fast answer on how fix this issue.
Cable size look like 3/32'' ,1/16 ...or smaller.
Don't think a system reset would help as your issue seems to be mechanical...

Got it, thanks. reached out to them. They said they were very surprised the cable had failed at that area, and I have to replace the entire cable because of it. Not sure I'm 100% sold on this, but I'm out of ideas at this point.
