Need help with throttle cable attachment


Recommended Posts

As some of you already know, I recently had to have my engine (5.7L Hammerhead 380hp in an '04 Response LXi) rebuilt. I removed the engine myself, took it to a mechanic for the rebuild, and then re-installed it in the boat. Since the re-install, the throttle cable has come unattached twice from the throttle body, leading me to believe that I connected it wrong. Can someone with a similar engine post a close-up picture or two of how the throttle cable attaches to the throttle body?

Not sure if the linkage setup is the same as mine but I had mine fall off a few times after I bought the boat (used) and ended up that I was missing a nut to lock it down into position.

The fine folks at perfect pass sent me the attached diagram (quality is terrible) but it was enough to see what I was missing near that little copper colored L bracket, maybe this will help?

Did you figure out that issue with your gauges?

Thanks for the pic! The problem with my gauges was caused by a bad connection in the cannon plug. I had taken it off and cleaned it, but apparently there was a short inside the plug.
