Throttle Body Return Spring(Perfect Pass)

Recommended Posts

bradfr

I have been having issues with my perfect pass lately and have tracked it down to a weak throttle body return spring. Does anyone know where to buy these return springs from? I looked all over the net for monsoon engine parts, indmar engine parts, with no luck.

The other solution that I could do is add an external spring to the linkage to try and help it return like it is supposed to. Has anyone had any luck doing this?

have you tried to call Bakes? They are pretty good with looking up random parts and usually can get a good answer for you.

Or try calling Smooth Water Sports. (more geographically desirable)

Simple solution, go to hardware store and buy external spring. Tons of boats need an external spring. Another option is call Perfect Pass, they included a spring with my kit that arrived last week.

It is really hard to find a spot to attach an external spring on that motor. I also had problems with Perfect Pass and was convinced it was a weak return spring. That is not an easy part to replace as I believe you can't just replace the spring. Ultimately, I found that my throttle cable had come loose from the bracket holding the sheathing in place near the motor.

Crystal, I saw your post in my searching and unfortunately that I not my problem. I was looking at the return spring and I am not even sure it is replaceable. I am going to try and take the external spring route. I read that in the perfect pass troubleshooting document as well.
