as most have seen in another thread I recently blew my stbd coupler 100 miles from home and had a local mechanic there pull the boat and replace the bad coupler. All good there. But now the stbd throttle is much stiffer than the port. I noticed it when leaving the repair as I went to throttle up and really had to push hard to get past 2k rpm and went back in. Mechanic got in and made adjustments on the engine. Got better but not the same as the port. I told him it was not the same but he said it was in the exact spot it should be and since it worked fine,just stiffer, we left for home. Actually since I bought the boat I've wanted more friction so the stiffness is not bad just now one side is stiffer than the other. Two questions:
1- how can it now be stiffer after a coupler change?
2- is there an easy way that I can either make the stiff one looser or the loose one tighter?
