I dropped the lower unit to replace the impeller and screwed up the shift rod lever, piece that connects the rod to the engine/cables. I thought I got a replacement but that doesn't seem to fit right. The old part is 318556 and the new one is 326644. THe new one fits on the shaft fine but seems to big and when on you can't shift anymore. Does anyone have any ideas? Or where to get old parts. It's a 77 evinrude 55hp.
The BRP website shows part# 0320132 for a short shaft model,and 0320133 for a long shaft engine.These may be a superceded number,i don't know.
Those are the numbers for the shift rod,is that what your talking about?

I am confident that it's the right part number, because the number is stamped on the old part.
Ordered a new one from Evinrude parts, supposed to be here in 2-7 days.
Not bashing anyplace, but the other place might have the different part number because it's an old motor and parts might not be made anymore and that was the supposed replacement number. The new part fit but would not allow enough travel for proper shifting.
