I had the same single lever quicksilver control on my nova.I swapped them over to the dual lever zero effort style.It was really easy to do.I had to trim a little material to fit it in,but it help update the boat.There are a lot of manufacturers that make this design.It comes down to budget and personal preference.Keikhafer,morse,livorsi,and gaffrig are a few.

Gaffrig Throttles prices are not bad it says, All throttles include 30 series cable connection kits. How do I know what cables I have?

The 30 series throttle cables are universal.The have a threaded end and use adapters to connect to whatever style throttle and motor you have.They are red in color and made by teleflex and morse.Quicksilver is the factory make by mercrury marine.You may still be able to buy a replacement throttle that matches your old one.

I just put a teleflex universal on this past weekend and it seems to work just fine... not fancy, but not too bad and gets the job done - especially for a couple hundred bucks

sorry, no pic on hand and batteries were dead in the digital cam. it's a model 1700 series, side mount that I installed, but when I was at overtons getting it they also had top mount on hand as well. it wasn't bad to install and works smoothly.

I'm wanting to switch from single lever dual control to dual levers dual control on my Formula 223LS. Can you use a dual lever Morse control for twin engines for this? Here's the one I'm thinking of buying:

I would think you could find some much nicer offshore style controls for that price. I only paid $200.00 for mine used. Check Ebay and the classifieds here and on OSO.

How much did you pay for your livorsi controls? New or used?

What brand did you buy used on EBay for $200? That sounds exactly what I would be willing to spend.
