    Default new shift cable install question

    I just put a new teleflex 43 bc cable in my ultra. the problem im having is that it seems too loose. the boat resorts to reverse(gravity from the cup) and wont stay in nuetral or forward. is there a way to adjust the stiffness? any help would be appreciated!!

    There is supposed to be a waffle washer on the pivot shaft of the shift lever. It puts tension on the pin to hold the lever in place. If it is weak or missing, it will cause your problem. One other way to solve this is to buy one of the billett shifters with a detent to hold them in place. Such as;

    Also, to add to what Duane states, sometimes the shift lever is installed improperly, there needs to be squeeze tension on the wave washer, many times the lever is locked down to far out from the flange (if you have the Morse type lever that is)....

    Default Friction ring

    I have a friction ring on my shift/throttle lever. It's pretty cool.

    Sometimes you can find one at a hardware or industrial supply store. This is what they look like. Just find the right size.

    Then click on Disc Springs.
    Then click on Wave Disc Springs.

    Just for reference, I measured one from a spare shifter.

    Inside diameter = 0.762" (has to fit over a 3/4" shaft)
    Outside diameter = 1.250" (smaller would work, larger probably wouldn't)
    Thickness = 0.020"
    Amount of curvature = approximately 1/8"

    Since Rex Marine makes their own line of shifters, you might contact them to see if they use a similar item.
