Generally, periodic lubrication of all moving parts and
connections with a light, waterproof grease is in order.
Cables can be lubricated by positioning them to their
fullest extension and applying light grease to the inner
cable near the jacket. Working the cables back and
forth will distribute the grease in the inner cable.
Reapply the grease if necessary.
Any time the boat is operated, be aware of
changes in shift system operation. A sudden
increase in shift effort of the shifter levers, or
other abnormal operation, indicates a possible
problem in the shift system. If this occurs, the
following precautions must be taken:
Lubrication should be performed as often as neces-
sary to keep the system operating smoothly. Cable
manufacturers such as Teleﬂex and Morse often offer
special tools to make cable lubrication easier.
With engine running and boat securely tied
to the dock, shift drive into forward and
reverse to ensure there is gear engage-
Cable and control adjustments may become neces-
sary. Adjustment screws in the control, on the cables
and in the linkage are provided.
When docking the boat, all docking maneu-
vers must be performed at slow speed. Pay
special attention to other boaters. Passen-
gers should be informed of potential
problems and precautions taken.
If you suspect there is a problem, see your
or Volvo Penta dealer as soon as
possible for proper diagnosis and required service or
adjustment. Continued operation could result in
damage to the shift mechanism and loss
F - 3 NEUTRAL SAFETY SWITCH
Every control system has a neutral safety switch incor-
porated into it. This device prohibits the engine from
being started while the shift lever is in any position
other than the neutral position. If the engine will not
start, slight movement of the shift lever may be
necessary to locate the neutral position and disen-
gage the safety cutout switch. Control or cable
adjustments are required to correct this condition
should it persist. See your Four Winns dealer for
necessary control and cable adjustments.
F - 4 CONTROL SYSTEM MAINTENANCE
Periodic inspections of the controls, cables, and all
connections should be made. Signs of looseness,
rust, corrosion, wear, cable jacket cracks or other
deterioration require immediate system servicing.
Replace all damaged components.
