Customer Question

I have 25HP 4 stroke OB motor (model 2005 25 ELPT 5S, serial #1B112815) & control (#881170A15). I don't understand how to hook up control cables in control box so throttle cable will 'push' linkage in motor. Is this correct control for this motor or is an adapter kit to make this control box or engine?

Thank you for allowing me to assist you, my name is Joe and I will be happy to assist you with your concern today.

Here is a manual that covers the controls and shows connections:

Note that the connections are a pretty fairly simply push pull design. Usually you can reverse the cams or move the linkage to change the cable direction/function.

Thank you!

Good morning,

You asked if it was the correct control and I did not say that it was not. I also provided the steps on how to reverse the cam and linkage in order to reverse the function. I also provided the service manual that shows how they come apart.
