I have all new stuff cable,place diverter,lever! And when I am under speed the bucket will start to drift down and cause steering and water coming in boat problems! How can I tighten it up so it wont move under speed? Has anyone had to solve this problem befor? WT

Widetrack most fwd rev controllers use nyliners for smooth operation and also have a "wavy washer" to tension (often missing) The Wavy helps keep the handle tight, check it out ? if its not there call me i'll give you one . If the bucket is adjusted correctly (out of the path of the exit at WOT) shouldn't happen ! lets see a pic otherwise ! Tom

PS You could also consider a three position locking type handle

I had that problem and just switched to a shifter with a detent. Problem solved.

Exactly. Mine would pop into neutral half way into plane. What a pisser! I bought a new reverse handle with a button on the handle so it would lock into 'drive' and 'reverse'. Problem solved.

Or just hang onto the handle until you are on plane and going. I did that for years....then got sick of it. ;)
