i want to convert my hand throttle to a foot throttle on my 75 21ft sleek craft mini day cruiser. what all do i need to accomplish this? i was looking on cpperformance.com and it looks like i need to buy the foot throttle and the cable separate. do i need to measure and see exactly what length cable to get or do i somehow run off of the cable that is running to the hand throttle? the foot throttles aren't adjustable are they? thanks
I would keep an eye out it the SPAM (for sale) section and try to find a used one. All you should need is the pedal, cable and possibly a bracket for the carb. I believe some of the pedals pull the cable and some of them push. Mine pushes the cable so I have a bracket the goes forward from the carb and a shorter cable. The bracket can be reversed for a pedal that pulls but you would need a longer cable to route it behind the motor.
You may be able to use you existing cable and bracket from the hand throttle. I have no idea on that.
Sorry no others chimed in on this sooner. Usually these guys are pretty good about answering questions. Hopefully someone with more expertise than me will chime in about using the existing cable.
