Default outboard

Can someone help me out here. I have a tunnel hull with a K&B 7.5 outboard I am restoring. Can someone show me a simple way to set up the linkages for steering and throttle control.

Pictures would be very helpful.

Thanks,
Comodore-H

The throttle and steering mounts are from K&B. DuBro seals are used for connecting rudder servo to rudder linkage and Sullivan flexible cable for the throttle linkage.

Hope this is of assistance.

Old shots or old boat Jerry? I don't see those Robart pieces around much any more!
About the only thing that i can really add is to make sure that your throttle linkage is long enough to make sure that it doesn't affect the throttle when the boat makes a left turn. The cable sheath has to be connected at both ends, to the box and to the throttle clamp.

The boat is my Shaman and I like the Robart seals. Photo was taken yesterday.

Happy New Year, Ron.

I use Sullivan-cables all arround.

With ball-links on the servo-arm and EZ-connectors on the other end.
