Does anyone know where to get the correct cable to go from the control box to the inside connections of a 1986 6 hp? Everyone want to sell me one that is designed to connect outside and this model has no outside connector. Is the a device that connects the 2 cables together? Any help will be greatly appreciated.
To use remote controls onyour 6hp motor, you need to install the # 431840 kit for the throttle hookup.
