    I have a twin lever control on my boat,the engines are Evinrude and Johnson.(used seperately)
    I have recently purchased a 1999 25hp Johnson with a single lever control box.
    Will the older twin lever cables match up with the single lever control box?
    The original cables are a bit worse for wear,so I intend to get new ones.
    To save me having to fit the single lever control box instead of the twin lever it would be handy if they were compatable.
    When I have the time I intend to change the controls over to the single lever box.
    There is no wiring involved on either of the boxes.,just
    the throttle and gear functions.The 25hp is a rope start.
