How to adjust the throttle cable on a Suzuki outboard?

Re: Suzuki throttle cable adjustment Ask someone else to push the throttle forward and open the engine by hand, then tighten the adjustment screw and return it to neutral and make sure the engine throttle is fully relaxed in the rest position.

With that in mind, how do you adjust the throttle cable on an outboard motor?

Throttle setting
  1. Loosen the throttle cable adjusting nut with the wrench.
  2. Push the control lever forward to the rest position.
  3. Pull the control lever back from the neutral position to the reverse position.
  4. Push the throttle fully forward.

And how does a boat's throttle control work? The accelerator pedal is a lever that can be pushed forward to increase boat speed. When the gas level is pushed forward, it opens the gas in the outboard motor, which brings more air and fuel into the combustion chamber at a higher frequency.

Do you also know how to lubricate a boat's throttle cable?

Pour enough engine oil into the bag to fully lower the end of the cable sleeve and zipper. Place a container under the bottom of the cable to catch any oil that may drip from the bottom of the sleeve. Let the cable hang freely until the oil runs out.

How do you measure a throttle cable for a boat?

Measure from the controller along the open harness to the center of the outboard motor. Add four feet to allow the loop to allow the motor to move freely. Round to the nearest full foot and order the required cable part number. (The last two digits of the cable code represent the length of the cable in feet.)

Why does my boat die when I turn it on?

Outboard speed is slower when in gear. They can die if they are turned on because one or more cylinders may have a problem and will not activate. Once engaged, the speed is so low that the engine shuts down.

How does a lower unit work?

The bottom unit (or gearbox) is the part of the outboard motor that takes power and rotation from the motor and transfers it to the crankshaft and propeller. This will spin the propeller and push the boat into the water.
