Mercury OB shifting problem

5 posts in this topic

I was out last night in the boat and when I went to trailer it I shifted to go forward and all it would do is go in reverse. It also goes reverse in neutral. Anyone have any advice about the linkage and maybe something slipped out or is it a little more involved than that. Any inforamtion would be great.

Thanks!

2002 150 Merc, I was planning on pulling the shifter oof the panel to look and I see if I could see anything wrong. Anything to look for?

Check inside motor cowl where the cables hookup to linkage, there is a plastic clip that holds the cables stops into position.

You can remove the shifter but you will not see anything since it's all closed up.

If you want to take it apart be very careful and study very well how is it assembled.

You can also disconnect cables at motor and see if they move correctly with shifter.

Cables seem to be moving fine when I checked them out so not sure where to and clips are fine also. Not sure where to turn next.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.

      I just went through it. Now my pup is a giant lab, but it is fitting. There is a lot of knowledge here with raising pups. Just ask and you will get great help

      I've tried to look for the source of this supposed information that the crayfish in Vermilion are high in mercury and same as the others - found nothing but stories like this on forums, etc...  In fact, I've typically found posts from someone on different forums, same name with that story.  In those cases, they state they talked to "someone" at the DNR in Tower who gave them that information...  roughly dating back to 2002-2005 time frame.   I'd like to think if this were actually true, there would be some data for the public to see to support it...   In the meantime, we catch em and boil them up every year.  Good eating when done right!  We figure we eat them once or twice a year, shouldn't be an issue...
