B-112 Throttle problem

Recommended Posts

Guest
The throttle keeps wanting to slide in on my B 112. I'll pull it out and vibration, etc will allow it to slide back in. I haven't looked into it yet, but what kind of advice is out there for this problem. I'm curious to hear if others have this occurance.

If you twist the throttle to the right it should lock in place. Turn it to the left to loosen and move in or out. If it is broken a simplity dealer should have a new one. ERICH

These throttles do have a twist lock feature. The actual internal lock is plastic & will wear out if the control is forced back & forth instead of loosening it each time. New ones are available but pricey. I have seen some owners slightly bend the shank to help it hold but these old girls deserve more respect than that! Bill from home
