    Late to the post but that's how it works, lift for cold start, locks out shift lever so you cant slam it into gear under high revs. if you have a motor well in front of the motor you may not need a loop, check cable tension and any unwanted forces turning lock to lock, tilted, to determine if they are binding. I had to put a loop on my kicker because the cable came straight out of the transom and having then straight to the motor would bind turning and tilting. Don't get the universal cables, then you have to buy cables ends, no need for that. Cables are made for the motor's year, that seems to be by each generation of the motors, your Merc 05 is the same as my 2012 Merc Pro Kicker, just check the guide supplied by the cable manuf. The numbers may have faded out, if they seem right length, order the same. Pull it first and measure to get it right if need be,,,gregg

    Lightbulb Re: Control Cable Help

    Missing bushings? I would imagine if it were the motor it would be visible. Exposure to elements could errode some. Maybe a digital camera shot would help. My control handle went out on me, along with the cable for the jet reverse cup. I hope you are able to resolve the problems.......Jetspray

    Can you tell me what bushings you're speaking of? At motor or control box? Do you have a receipt with part numbers I just really want to make sure we're talking about the same ones?
