I have a Sea Ray 300 Sedan Bridge with twin 260HP Mercruiser

Customer Question

I have a Sea Ray 300 Sedan Bridge with twin 260HP Mercruiser Inboard engines. They run fine but the port engine idles at 1000RPM and the starboard at about 700 how do I synchronize the two engines?
JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Marine Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so the Marine Mechanic can help you best.
Customer: have a Sea Ray 300 Sedan Bridge with twin 260HP Mercruiser Inboard engines. There are two helms but I am do not use the lower helm as the throttle cables do not work well and If I try to use them I snap the cables. In fact I propose to disconnect the cables from the lower helm.
They run fine but the port engine idles at 1000RPM and the starboard at about 700 how do I synchronize the two engines?
