If it is, here is a parts diagram for this unit.

I have the complete manual for this unit so if you need anything further, let me know and I'll try to copy it to you.

Here is the entire section of the manual dealing with the shifter pictured above.

Well, that didn't work....

The PDF file is 16 MB big and this editor will not let me post it.

Message me with your email address and I'll send it that way.

Webbie??

Is there a way or place I can uplaod this file so others might have access to it also??

Here's a link to the file posted at Google Docs....

Rich,

I have a 1988 198xl 5.0 liter (purchased new!) and just replaced the wood on both sides. I used the drawings which came in handy. Thanks so much for posting the info.

Thank-you Rich for posting the info. I could NOT find this in the MCM Service Manuals -- not in #15 and not in #11. Excellent.

Correct. Mostly need Quicksilver Service Manual 90-814705R2 for instructions on the Mercury Remote Controls. They're always fun...

Rick, of Marion, OH, you are a lifesaver! I have a trim problem, neither of the switches for "UP" or "TRAILER" activate the solenoid, i.e., no voltage reaching the "UP" solenoid coil's terminals. Trim pump "UP" works fine when the power terminals on the "UP" solenoid are jumped. The diagram you posted, shows disassembly procedure to see where to check for power and to identify the broken wire, probably the one from the two switches to the solenoid, odds are on the wire through the throttle/shifter/trim switch assembly. Of course the Chappie designers of our 1989 2100SE carefully planned for this event by putting all the wires and the control housing behind some lovely padded decorative panels whose removal will be the next mystery to unravel.

BTW, do you know if there is any slack in the wiring from the switches that goes through the handle shaft opening if the break is right at that location?

I don't *think* there was any slack but it's been a couple years since I had my unit apart. I do remember that threading the wires around inside the unit was tight.

Wow Rich! Thanks for posting this info. I just bought a boat (not a Chaparral) and have to redo the entire interior. I had a heck of a time finding out how to remove the Quicksilver Throttle handle. After several days and fumbling around, I came across this post. Thank you again!

I must have a frozen handle because after removing the throttle set screw, the handle still won't come off... it's loose, but does not want to come off the control shaft.

Anyone have any ideas or tips?

Thanks so much!

Rick
