    Throttle cable adjustment

    My throttle will pull back on its own when driving 225 black max quick silver controls. I have to drive with my hand on it at all times or it pulls back on its own, isnít there somehow I can tighten it up so I donít have to drive with my hand on it all the time?

    I did a little googling, and found that you can adjust the throttle friction on some mercs and not on others.
    The adjustment, if you have one, will be at the throttle and shifter control.

    For example, for one style:

    "Just talked to Merc tech support. Lucked out and got a pretty decent guy on the phone. Sent him pics

    Real helpful - the tech said it was either underneath the shifter in the console and there would be a screw there where the cables enter the control box or I have to pull the handle and there will be a friction adjustment there."

    There should be a friction adjustment on the front of your controls below the handle
