I have no owner's guide and my throttle cable broke under the dash. My reference manual is a S-series,(10 & 12 HP model)  which shows the Throttle Control  moved forward for Idle position and downward to the Fast position for maximum speed. Does anyone know if the 1973 Wards works the same way? I am not sure if the throttle control is a universal or stock and am not sure how it should be oriented. The actual part number for the throttle control is 23288. Thanks, ken

KC9KAS: As my luck runs; my dash is painted solid red with no descriptive lettering. Also the Gilson S-Series is exactly like you picture; howsomever, I was able to take some oven cleaner and carefully wipe away the red paint and guess what? The 1973 Wards Gilson had IDLE at the bottom and FAST at the top. So, at least I can be sure that if I can fix the current throttle control cable, it is properly oriented or if I have to buy another one, I can be sure of what to buy. So now to the next step, set the idle and re-connect the throttle control. Thanks, ken
