    Hello again,

    another small repair fix from my side:


    Morse throttle panel/lever feels loose


    disassembling Morse unit, take off the cables and the little messing pins


    In the picture you can hardly see that the leaf spring is broken, the leaf spring is pushing a little drum into unit for neutral, gear in forward and gear in back. If the spring is broken, the feel tension in the lever is coming loose.-(

    The second picture shows you the pin off the wear after 800h. Especially the gas pin wears out much more than the gear/clutch pin. If the pin is breaking with full throttle you can come into troubles:-)


    0. Check throttle cable that the cable is moving back by itself, if you pulling on it. If not you have to replace the throttle bowden because you have to muss friction inside the cable.

    1. Get a new leaf spring or copy the old one. it is easy.

    2. get new messing pins and put it together with grease.

    3. clean the unit from the old grease and wear, and put new grease on it

    Voila the morse unit feels like brand new:-)

    Cheers Nolle
