TOPIC: old 350 merc shifter shaft question

old 350 merc shifter shaft question 2 weeks 2 days ago #146875

hello,

How can I tell if I have reinstalled the lower unit correctly, as it relates to getting the position of the shifter shaft correct. Talking about the shift shaft and the upper and lower cam positions.
it seems very hard to change to the forward neutral and reverse positions
or maybe someone could recommend a link to a good video to watch
thank you

ok I decided to pull the lower unit off again because I felt the shift shaft was not working correctly almost would not move at the control box
so when trying to turn the lower shift shaft there is a spot where the shaft turns at least 180 degrees with just using my fingers. And when i do turn it with a ratchet i can not find the forward position

I have a short video to look at if you are interested in commenting
