Re: replacing throttle/shift cable
I had to take my boat into Honda for a recent recall and while there, I decided to let them do it I a recall it was right around 380. 4 cables plus labor.
I have a shop manual for the Hondas and the connections at the engine did not look that difficult, nor did running the cables through my boat to the controls. Just a few correct measurements to adhere to there specs.
I am confident I could have shoped around for a better price on the cables and did it myself, thus saving labor. It was just a case of , Hey, it's too cold to be messing with the boat outside. I also wanted to get a jump on the job before the spring rush of boaters getting repairs.
Heck, I pulled the lower units yesterday and will do the impellers myself this week in the house. Nice and warm job.
