Hello all and thank you for your help.
I have a 2002 mercury side mount with ignition choke and no warm up lever, that is flush mounted to the gunwale. I am wanting to replace the throttle and shift cables because throttle lever is stiff. There are no external screws that i can see holding this thing in place. they might me on the backside but that is near impossible with this being a sealed gunwale and only a six inch hatch behind control box. Any info??
