Perfect pass on a '96 sunsetter vlx

Recommended Posts

Can anyone help me with changing my throttle from a push to pull system to allow me to install a perfect pass system? How to route cable, brackets needed, changes in the lever, etc.

Perfect Pass doesn't sell a setup that will work for your boat as-is?

No perfect pass requires the throttle to be set up as a pull open system. Mine currently pushes with the cable to open the throttle. I know the conversion can be done and is supposedly straightforward I'm just looking for some tips and assistance.

I have already called them. They confirmed I needed the switch and offered no other help.

I can give you close up pics of my '97 vlx if it helps but I think I already posted up a pic in an earlier thread.

Nick if you don't mind a few more showing the routing and if there are any brackets that support the cable that would help a ton. Yes I do have your other pic you posted.

First pic is the blueish grey plate for support and cable clamping.

Second one is the back side.

Third is the throttle cable attached to the throttle at the captains chair. The throttle cable comes from the throttle and goes towards the bow of the boat under the dash board. Then it goes threw a hole in ther floor and into the ski locker, back along the gas tank, then into the rear stortage locker by the gas fill hose where it is hooked up to the gas tank and finally up to the engine. The whole way it is supported by plastic clips to keep it out of the water in the bottom of the boat.

Last pic are the numbers on my throttle cable, I'm guessing the 216 means 21'6" the cable length. But thats just a guess.
