    Default Identifying OMC remote throttle

    I have an 18' Lowe jon boat w/ a 1991 40 hp Johnson. The trim switch has went bad on the remote sidemount throttle, and I am trying to find out what year model it is. I am not sure if it is a 91 or older. Is there any way to identify the year model of the remote throttle.
    The only numbers I could find are on the inside of the throttle housing and they are 334764. Any info would be appreciated.

    Not sure what you are looking for. If you already know your motor is a '91. You just need to get a trim switch in a large range of years to work with your control box. Anything from '89 thru '95 will work (I believe)

    Thanks qhn, I am pretty sure it is a 1991 and I will check the part #'s to make sure. The problem I'm having now, is I cannot get the actual throttle handle that houses the trim switch apart from the body. I have the body seperated, but cant get the handle off.

    Put the throttle complete at your lap with the handle down.
    Un-screw the screw at the back a couple of turns, then give it a HARD knock using a hammer.
    The handle should come loose -remove the screw and handle.

    BRP is no longer making the part, that is why it now list for $100.00.
