Teleflex Controls Selection Guide




Technical Reference Manual



Which Control is Right for You?



When making a control system selection, please note that the type of engine, number of engines and number of helm stations determine which control or range of controls can be used.

Single engine/single station boats can use most of our controls when used with universal 3300/33 type control cables.

Outboards and stern drives should use controls with neutral interlock and safety switch features.

Inboard single-function type engine controls are recommended for hydraulic transmissions and twin stations. Note that some of these can be used with the heavy duty (4300/43 type cables); others cannot. Check your application.

Single function controls in dual station applications should use shift detents only at the operating station directly connected to engine/transmission.

Control cable routing paths should be chosen to minimize bends, kinks and obstructions. Cable routing with a few gradual bends will result in better feel at the control.

After installation, all boats should be water tested to ensure safe, dependable operation.
