How To Make The Morse Tight ! It Is Too Lose And Moves Itself..

Recommended Posts

Jimmypooh

I just talked to Jim over there in the Control and Cables Tech Support department. He said the 2 springs actually lay inside each other. My guess is that originally they only had 1 spring in there and the second adds more tension. I'll check when I get my new springs that he's sending, but I'll bet that when the dealer service guys replaced my spring, they only put one spring there (direct replacement) when they should have put 2 (upgrade). I will post some pictures up when I do this.

I emailed Jim yesterday and he responded with the same, both springs fit together in that spot. Boat is a 2006 VRide.

Have you tried it yet? Did it fix the problem?

Yes I added the second spring and it made a huge difference, especially compared to the existing spring that was almost completely snapped in half.

Got my new springs installed today and the tension seems perfect now!

Where did you get it from? I have the same broke spring and am having a hard time finding one. Do you have a part number and website or phone number?

Thanks.

I think I just looked up the customer service number for Morse/Teleflex and they sent me one from there. You basically double up the existing spring. See above in the thread. I can't seem to find the number I called but a Google search should work.

Hey guys - don't know if you'll respond as this forum is old but I'm having the opposite issue with my throttle and maybe you can shed some light on it. Here's my post from this morning. http://www.themalibucrew.com/forums/index.php?/topic/54371-morse-mv3-throttle-adjustment-perfect-pass-question/

I found one spring and replaced it but haven't found the second yet. The spring on the aft part of the throttle control was cracked. Here's pics of the parts, where the aft spring is located and the spring replaced.

I called SeaStar (Teleflex no longer in marine business) and actually tracked down Jim (referenced above). He told me to use the cable clamp and that the replacement springs are for the electronic throttle only. I really don't like this kind of kludge but thats all he could do for me at this point. Anyone have any other ideas?

Mine has the same and will just buy: Blue Spring Steel and make a spring myself. If it works will post it.

I had my transmission replaced in my 2007 Malibu Response. The throttle (drive by wire) worked great before , but now it's very stiff. Is there any way to adjust? It moves very smooth when button pulled out in neutral. It makes no sense, because there is no cable, only electric wires for drive by wire. Very perplexed?

You will have a cable for the trans engagement. The cable may of been misrouted or kinked some how. It should more or less be flopping around on top of the gas tank. If you do have a kink it will most likely be where the cable enters into and under the deck. The trans cable is in blue and is connected to the area where the trans and VD mate up.5922e7c6b281a_image_url-14628-13582778941.jpg.ba5679a461f441b7e42f82047d81c47b.jpg

It is also possible that the detent ball on the transmission shifter is tightened too far.  I would check with the installer to make sure the transmission is correctly adjusted if the visual inspection suggested by @wdr doesn't turn up any smoking guns.

I missed that this is a Response so you wont see it flopping around on the gas tank like on a VD.

@schmed - And welcome to the crew.

For future reference, it is almost always better to create a new post about your problem instead of dredging up a similar one that is several years old.  Maybe for an *identical* problem....

Back to your problem, disconnect the cable at the transmission end and make sure that the shifter still works smoothly.  If not, you have a linkage/cable problem.  If it is smooth, try manually shifting the transmission lever.  If it is very stiff, you can probably adjust the detent ball yourself, assuming that is the problem.

Cedar-I don't think that was the case in 2006. They all used the same throttle -morse mv3, but the ride series came with a plain black knob instead of the silver Malibu.

I believe http://www.skidim.com/products.asp?dept=1122, item 32211 at skidim.com is the model we all have.

CONTROL, SINGLE DBW TELEFLEX

Drive By Wire new style MV control, does not include shift knob (any knobs that we sell will fit). This control does not use a throttle cable but has the potentiometer/connection for drive by wire. Has the connector for shift cable.

I am trying to locate this part and no one seems to have it! Do you still have a source?

Are you looking for entire throttle assembly or the spring?
