after market shift and throttle cables

i don't feal its right that i purchased new 150 etec last year and the dealer is allowed to use aftermarket cables on during install, drove me nuts all last year, when i called dealer he told me nothing wrong with his insall.By the way that was Dubbert's 2344 east harbor road port clinton ohio. I don't think evinrude should let the dealer use aftermarket parts on a new motor install. cost me 450 to get his install fixed. don't use DUBBERT"S  Port Clinton Ohio

We recommend Evinrude designed parts and supplies for our engines but cannot force a dealer, an independent businessman, to use factory parts if others meet specifications and they choose to install them. Certain Evinrude parts have to be used in some situations, but cables are not one of them.

 

We applaud your quest for wanting OEM parts and suggest that you contact your dealer and have a discussion about replacing them.

Perhaps you and your dealer can come up with some type of arrangement. It doesn't hurt to ask.
