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.

      I can speak for Ludlows and have nothing but high praise. Mark, Sally, Paul and Kelly run a top notch resort. June to early September they are usually about Max capacity each week. Outside of the peak season weekend use is still relativity high. They don't have a restaurant on site but will provide(cooked in house) high end meals for some large cooperate groups that come in. They aren't struggling and the service won't be beat anywhere on Vermillion.

      hope you all are paying close attention to the meandered water issue at bay here in SD. Sounds like some landowners in Mn are taking notes.    Its a difficult subject and I and can see both sides from private and public perspectives.

      Now that the ice is gone, what do people fish for before the walleye opener? Any reports?
