  • Need to convert BFP8D from tiller to remote

    I have searched several sites and called even more places and this is my last ditch effort. I have a BFP8D tiller motor. I desperately need to convert it to a allow the use of remote controls. The motor is used for trolling and is mounted on the extended transom ( or offshore bracket) next to the main motor. I have an autopilot which allows me to control the speed and turning from within the confines of the boat. Now, when I need to shift from Neutral to FWD or REV, I have to lean over the transom to reach the lever. There is nothing like taking a big wave in the face while trying to do this.
    I love the motor and would rather not have to replace the whole thing. No one has been able to direct me to a package or part numbers that would allow me to convert this to a remote.
    Any suggestions?
    Thanks in advance.

    Unfortunately there are no kits available, you would have to buy parts individually.
    From diagram you would need number 3-8, 14(order 2),15(order 2),21,31,35(order 2),38(order 2) and use 44 inplace of 32 and 34.

      Thanks! This is exactly what I was hoping for. I just placed the order. Is there any way to get a bigger version of the exploded picture you showed the parts in?

              Now that I have those parts on order from you, I need to add the remote control. Since I'm going through the trouble I might as well make it remote start/tilt too. From what I can tell, the remote I need is 24800-ZY1-872. This says it comes with a 16ft harness. Is there another part to this that I need to plug in to the engine wiring? How would I get a longer harness?

              Thanks in advance,
              -Dale

                It looks like you would need to change the harness on engine to 32100-ZW9-650 so that the control wiring harness will plug into engine harness. A 7ft extension harness 32570-ZY1-000AH is available for extending control harness.

                  I was looking on the site for the control cable that go the remote. It lists two, I know the remote uses 2, one for shifting and one for throttle. What is the difference between the two different part numbers:
                  24920-ZY3-003
                  24926-ZW7-U01

                  Thanks, Dale

                    24920-ZY3-003 is the standard cables
                    24926-ZW7-U01 is the supreme cables, better to use if cable has to make tight bends.
