Forward/reverse solenoid - 2014 23LSV - Livorsi Throttle


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know where to find or how to swap the forward and reverse solenoid on a 2014 23LSV?  I have a similar problem that others have mentioned in the forum in a few different post with the boat slipping .  Dealer called Indmar and they were aware of the issue but not enough for a recall.  Suggestion was to swap the forward and reverse solenoid to rule out a bad solenoid first since I likely wouldn't notice it in reverse.  I'm assuming if that doesn't fix the issue it is likely the  bad Livorsi throttle assembly that others have encountered.  

I believe it is a simple pull of 2 bolts to access the solenoids, but I can't seem to find exactly where it is or how to do it online.  Any suggestions are appreciated.  Link below is a pic of where I believe they are but not positive.

Well I decided to dive in and see what I could find on this.  Just in case anyone needs to know those circled are the forward and reverse solenoids. The forward is closest the the transmission and the reverse is to the left of it from this angle. There is a long tube about the size of your pinky that gets unscrewed and allows you to slide the 2 solenoids off of the shaft that goes into the transmission. Hope this helps someone down the road if they need to replace a solenoid.
