Al, Jeff,

Would either of you two gents have a drawing that shows the Throttle push rods, I am interested in the ends were they would have changed direction up near the cockpit.

Check out the Elco Parts catalog David, starting on page 153. The image on page 179 shows the cover inside the turret. I haven't run across a drawing for this piece so I'm unsure if it is the same cover on all boats. Let me know if the catalog doesn't have enough detail for you, I can dig through the drawings.

For anyone reading that is not aware of the catalog, Dick has made it available on the Free PT Documents page: http://www.ptboatforum.com/PT_Boat_Documents.html.

DAVID I have photos of all the (HIGGINS) parts on my home computer, I will post later.

The part you are looking for is similar to these but where the handles are there is a clevis pin and rod that goes up to the throttle's and the cable goes around the shiv.

ELCO, HIGGINS, or HUCKINS?

Cool Randy, man what a ton of work you guys are doing but they look great. Is that the 305s?

Word Al, guilty of assumption. I'm going to go flagellate myself for a while. (*!*)

The green rods come from the throttles hook to the arms and you can see the cables going through the bulkhead. the second two are in the officer quarters and engine room.

Randy,
It appears the Elco boats did not use the aircraft style cable and pulley system that is used on the Higgins. It looks like they used solid push rods. Weird right?

Hi,
In one way It's actually a much better engineering solution as there is very little lost in translating the relatively small throttle lever movement over such a long run. Difficult to repair if damaged though, I would think.

Best Regards,
Stu.
