    How many hours? Any idea if the previous owner replaced any of the cables and/or shifter? I replaced the cables and shifter on a 2010. The new setup is stiffer than my other boats, but still smooth. With ZO, it’s a non issue.

    Most throttles have some sort of friction adjustment once they went TBW.

    The throw from neutral to gear being stuff can be shifted cable but there forwards is all friction.

    Teleflex Morse cam style controls have a little brass follower that can become dry and wear/distort. This not an uncommon problem with this unit. Sadly I know of no replacement brass ferrule or replacement part short of replacing the whole unit. I have turned a few replacement parts in the past on a small lathe but currently have no extras nor the lathe to do so..
    Hobby Boats can be expensive when the hobbyist is limited on their own skill and expertise.

    @Jody_Seal is there much demand for that part? I have a hobby CNC lathe and could make a run of them if there was enough market.
