    Default Need help with 1985 DT 30 Remote control box

    Hi--new here. My Sea Scout Ship (part of the Boy Scouts) recently received the donation of a nice 1985 DT 30 for our 13' Boston Whaler. We found and bought an NA 12 S remote control so the scouts can learn how to shift gears and use a throttle. However, the throttle cable pulls in (moves forward) to accelerate, while the throttle bell-crank on the side of the motor needs to move aft to open the throttle (shifting works fine). What to do? Is this control box not compatible with our motor? Or can something be changed inside the control box or motor throttle control to make it work?
    Thanks!

    You need to get a push throttle plate and swap it out inside you NA12 control box. Also in a pinch you can modify the pull plate to make it a push plate by moving the arm to the top hole. You also have to spin the "Drum" item #39 in the diagram 180deg to fit the other slot in the throttle plate for the throttle in neutral lever.
