put a small (see below) cable clamp on the control cable upstream from the throttle lever in the motor compartment. Tighten the clamp a bit at a time. The clamp compresses the outer sheath; the friction on the inner wire increases; and the internal wire will not creep any longer. Don't overdo it just tighten a bit at a time until throttle creep is eliminated.
Yah... I used a bungy cord to tie my throttle until I discover (from this forum) my Edson throttle has a built-in tensioner for the cable ...now why didn't i think of that.... It was tiring just motoring in and out of the harbor, while I held the throttle in place..
I took a look inside my Edson pedestal and found a counterbore, but no through hole with threads to insert a screw for braking. Looks like a simple fix to drill out and tap the hole. I've left a message with Edson to see if this is the best option for me.inside your Lesson pedestal under the compass there is an adjustment screw. if there isn't one like my boat, you can add one by drilling and taping for the screw.
