    I've got a 02 mercury 60 2stroke and I am having problems out of the control. I've never been crazy about the feel of these controls but now i've got bigger problems. I hit the gear bypass button to rev the engine while still in nuetral and the button dever depressed. I've taken the control all to pieces, much more complicated than yamaha, and still don't have a solution staring me in the face. Has anyone ever delt with these? I'm considering just buying a new one. It's a center console control by the way.

    Binnacle or side mount style?

    I guess binnacle is the word. It's not side mount. The key and choke is located elsewhere on the console.

    Many different brands of binnacles out there.
    Without knowing the brand or model very difficult to diagnose.
    You may have a Merc on the transom, but the binnacle could be Morse,
    Teleflex, Yamaha or Mercury. All will do the job, just depends on who rigged the boat.
    Determine model and brand, then hop on line and find the parts diagram.
