Etec remote throttle.

Greetings.  I'm totally new to boating but just picked up a Etec 30 hp tiller motor.  I have a 1958 Elgin runabout that I would like to put the motor on.  I'm looking for the most cost effective remote throttle to use on the project.  Any help would be appreciated.  The motor doesn't have power trim and is pull start.  Steering seems easy but I'm not having luck finding what I might need.

Remote Control Adapter
Evinrude® E-TEC® 25-30 HP - Converts tiller controlled engines to “remote” shift and throttle control.
1. If converting a DT model outboard (tiller with power trim and tilt), Trim
and Tilt Harness, P/N 587028 is required to control trim function from
remote control trim switch.
2. If installation of a trim gauge is desired, order sending unit and
mounting hardware separately.
3. Refer to appropriate parts catalog. For remote steering order Steering
Connector Kit, P/N 5009753.

 

 

You can use any of the Evinrude shift&throttle remote control boxes for your motor

Re: Etec remote throttle.

I picked up remote throttle 5006180.  The control cables seem very straight forward.  My motor does not have electric start or power trim and tilt.  The remote throttle I got is NOS and has no power trim or tilt switch.  What harness do I use so that my kill switch works?  Do I have to make my own.  Really my question is how do I hook the 6 pin connector to the outboard?

Re: Etec remote throttle.

You can get a BRP wiring harness (MWS for about $150) which will plug into the engine and control box, also gives a lot of other connectors for gauges. With this harness you will to turn the key on to rope start, then the key will work as an off and kill switch. The kill lanyard on that box just rotates the key to off when pulled.
Now for quick, cheap, and easy. Remove the kill switch from the tiller arm, extend the two wires to your helm, and mount the switch up there.

The only function the key switch will do is to ground or unground the black wire with yellow stripe.

If you wish, there are keyswitch panels that you can purchase from any Evinrude dealer that use a cable that connects to the engine giving you on and off, plus safety switch activation if ever needed.
