    The shift control cable broke on my 1996 Regal Rush xp120 jet boat! Since the MV-2 control is obsolete I had to replace it with a CH2300P control box. I’m wondering if the new cc21310 control cable will work. I have not received the new CH2300P control yet.
    Anyone have any experience? The reason I purchased a new control box is the Interlock Insert was missing half the teeth making it very unsafe to drive. Parts are no longer available for the MV-2 according to the manufacturer Morse - Sea Star Solutions.
    Any help is greatly appreciated. I can supply photos when I get on my laptop.
    Thanks,
    Ski
    PS this was posted to iBoats around July 28, 2018. I was unaware of jetboaters.net at the time. Since then, I purchased the xtreme 33c 10ft control cable, the CH2300P control box, fished the cable through the hull and noticed the thru hull connector fitting was cracked. I thought everything was going well until I realized the connector has to be replaced otherwise I will have a big leak into the bilge. Does anyone know if the engine has to be pulled, or the impeller intake grate, or the ride plate have to be removed in order to insert a new connector from the inside? Does the Drive Oil have to be drained before attempting to remove the grate or plate?
    I sent a note the Regal Boats product VP and he replied that he forwarded my inquiry to customer service since the boat is obsolete. They also recommended that I take the boat to an authorized Regal Rush dealer for service. It may come to that but the jet boat is 22 years old and I think the repair will be more than the boat is worth. It is worth it to me, however, to try everything I can to get this boat back in the water.

    Might not be a huge help, but for those broken plastic bits it may be easier to have someone 3d print them versus finding replacements. Good luck!

    Hi, do you mean the interlock Insert? The metal disc behind the throttle lever with missing teeth!

    After a few days of spraying PB to all the screws I was only able to loosen 4 on the impeller grate. The screws to the impeller grate (6) are Phillips. I then tried to loosen the Torx screws (10) on the ride plate. I was able to turn all of them but decided to spray again with PB and leave overnight. I’m hoping I will be able to see the thru hull connector fitting inside and be able to reach it. If not I’ll go back to the impeller grate if that will give me access.
    if these things don’t work, and if I don’t learn how it is supposed to be done, then I will try to rig a threaded pipe, with large enough inside diameter to allow the cable to pass through, and secure at each end to prevent leaks. We’ll see! Very frustrating at this point, but still hope!

    PS found the illustration on the net. Clearly shows how control/shift cable goes through pump.

    Was contacted by Regal Boats customer service yesterday! They suggested that ride plate needs to come off to get to thru hull connector fitting. Will start doing that today and take photos. I want to take it very slow to not break screws. Will probably spray the seal thoroughly with Dawn!! Keep you posted!

    9 out of 10 screws out! Last one, at rear of plate above gate turns very, very slow! Sprayed PB twice and will again let sit overnight. Taking lots of precautions NOT to break screw(s).
    Try again tomorrow and hopefully get ride plate off and take more photos.

    021IMG_9523small2016.jpg 022IMG_9528arrowSmall2016.jpg 023IMG_9543arrowSmall2016.jpg 024IMG_9551arrowSmall2016.jpg Thanks ALL!! It was hard to wait overnight Friday while the PB soaked into the last screw at the rear of the ride plate. But yesterday I was able to remove it after spraying PC compressed air, which I use to blow off my computers. It got the screw very cold which helped it contract a little. I then placed a 3 ft 2x2 between the ride plate and the pump housing and pried the plate very gently. It came right off!!! I could now see the inside of the thru hull hole.
    I now need to clean the hole area, purchase some parts and put the whole thing back together. I will continue to add as I get to completion. Thanks for your help!
    Regards,
    Ski
