Help Tip: If you have a question that has not been answered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum members.

Below are some additional forum policies in hopes of all iboats members will follow, Thank you.

1. Please do not reply to old threads or hijack existing threads. Old threads of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

2. Old threads should be considered archives and used for reference only. Please do not reply to them.

3. Do not take over someone elseís thread (aka hijack) with your own question, even if it is similar. If you have a question that has not been covered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the thread is over 30 days old, send the OP a PM, he may not even visit the forums any longer, or may not notice your question in the old thread.

5. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum helpers that may not even notice your question when itís posted at the end of someone elseís thread. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to threads that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any thread that remains inactive for that long should be considered "dead". It is especially confusing when there is an entirely new question posted to an old thread.

7. Posting at the end of any thread is considered to be hijacking the original posters thread which in turn subjects the thread to be closed if it continues to happen thus not making it fair to the original poster in the future had for some reason he/she needed to return for additional information or provide an update of the problem solved which is always welcomed within a reasonable amount of time frame.

8. Please note that you should see a red banner pop up near the bottom of each inactive thread asking you not to reply to old threads. The Red banner will read: Please note this thread has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new thread.

Thank you all in advance for doing your part in helping iboats run a smooth ship.

  • 1990 Bayliner Capri with 90 hp force L drive with rattling feeling when shifting

    Just bought a Bayliner capri with the 90 force l drive, took it out for the first time and as it went from neutral to in gear there would be a rattling feeling coming from the shifter with the sound from the engine, almost like its not quite clicking into gear. I tried searching for the throttle cable adjustment on here but not quite specific enough. If I slam it farther ahead it will click into gear but pop out within 5 seconds. It did this for awhile and after I docked and came back it started hard and shift into gear by itself, very slowly it did this so I shut it off. I undocked and started quick to go load the boat up, The rattling was gone in the shifter but as I came up to the other dock I wanted to go into reverse and it seemed to go forward. I would like to adjust the throttle cable linkage, I just don't know which way to go with it. thanks Nathan

    After the fact I did drain the gear lube, only about a quart came out, and notice the little screw above the drain plug was a little loose so I tightened it.

      Update: Took it out on the lake only to find out forward is reverse and reverse is somewhat reverse. Took down the lower unit, got some good material from merc marine. The gear pivot screw has sheared off, cant get the shift arm up and out of the lower unit. Is it supposed to just pull up with the yoke on? Or is my problem more with the pivot screw being sheared off?
