Comments about Teleflex Trim & Tilt:
The cables are routed through "nests" that swivel. The throttle cable swivels UP which puts an added strain on its freedom of movement, especially when gravity pulls the remaining length of the cable DOWN. We had to return our red jacket cables and use the premium ones to get smoother motion.
Would also have liked it better if the front plate was sheerly cosmetic and not used for actual mounting. That same plate must be removed to access and tweak the friction adjuster. Not good.
Also, there is no option to disregard the safety kill switch without having a big hole in the trim plate. An unpunched plate would be a welcome option.
Aside from those complaints, we're pleased with the upgrade from our old Morse control.
Comments about Teleflex Trim:
The shifter is solid and works well but save your money on the trailer switch option and install a better switch in the dash. Unit came without the correct mounting plate for the trailer switch and the switch itself was cheaply made. Also the template leaves no room for error when installing the shifter. Instructions can be a little confusing.
