I need to adjust the shifting cable but how do you adjust it. Its not disengaging completely when I go into neutral it also stalls when i try to go from forward to natural and then to reverse.

[ Attachment Invalid Or Does Not Exist ]   I am a MerCruiser Master TECH. I need to know what drive you have, there is I, R, MR, Alpha One, Alpha One SS. Drive SER# or year will tell me. I also need to know ENG.TYP. In line 4 In line 6 or V8. Wait theres more, Is the shift control mounted to the back of the ENG, Side of the ENG or the exhauet manifold. There is a deferent adjustment for each one.Thees drives also have a reverse trim lock valve & shift cutout switch that is part of this adjustment. Get back with me and i will try to walk you threw it Scooter.

Its a 1981 with a 350 and it has one of those stern drive enginering out drives that a knock off the merc but the catsing is a little different then the old drive I use to have. I dont even think the old drive was an alpha. The shift control is mounted at the back of engine.

Also were are you located and do you have shop. If your near me I might be willing to bring it to you and just pay you. Ive been trying to find a new boat mechanic but it just seems like there's a lot of shady shops around my area that just want to keep taking your money even if they didn't fix it right the first time. Like the guy that put this outdrive on for me.
