    If I remember correctly, you can mount the box in either direction and you have to install the connecting arms in the direction your cables approach the box. That would allow for your dualality. If that's a word?

    Kurt, Just shows we have nothing else to talk about. It is my opinion though that the throttle should always be to stbd. The great debate is on.

    Also, confirmed that my.morse controls are 7/16 20. Drilled and tapped the one, then my bit was too dull to do the other. Stainliss is tough!

    Go slow! Heat from speed is your enemy. Use cutting oil and start-stop your drill while drilling. Same with tap.

    I like my throttle on the port side. Our 88 had it on the port side so thats how I learned for 18 years. My 97 Express came opposite so I rotated the morse control.
    Thats the way I like it any way. West coast style maybe.
