hello, i need some help with my shifting issues. ive spent countless hours the last two weeks trying to get this figured out with no suscess. my problem is at the shift plate i do believe and syncing the 2 cables with the cut out. ive follwed the manual to the T and still not helping. ive also checked the shift cable to the outdrive and it does seem to slide fairly easy. yesterday i even pulled the outdrive off and checked the roller and pulled the cable all the way out and put some 3 in 1 oil on it and slid it back in and rehooked it up. the best i can get it to do is shift in to foward ok. but when i shift to reverse from nuetral the engine just dies beacaue it trips the cut out switch. as soon as it gets to just about the point of the throttle cable on the carb getting ready to move the throotle the shift cable moves the cut out switch and kills the engine. and the roller on the cut out switch does not go back in the valley of the y plate. ive been adjusting both shift cables every which way. i have not touched the throttle cable at all yet. it is set up with out the shift assist also. but i do have an extra shift assist set up laying around but i do not think thats it. im starting to think its cables are to stretched but then im not sure of that either. im getting ready to go back outside now and re set everything to start like the manual says. i put the boat over today to try it in the water and i had same problems. if any one can give me some input i need it.............i kind of feel like i did not explain my problem real clear so i'll try to explain this one more time, what im going through.. if i follow the manual setting up the shift cables, top and lower this is what i can get. i can get the boat to shift into and out of foward fine. but when i go to shift into reverse the boat engine just dies, its dying because of the cut out switch being activated..the cables are moving the roller on the cut out switch arm out of that y plate valley and its staying there. there is no play inthe cable to let it stay in the valley... soon as i go into reverse the cable just moves that wsitch like i stated,,,so what adjustments do i need to do.. i thank any one who chimes in to help, all advice is greatly welcomeed..
