Have a alpha 1 outdrive and just reinstalled outdrive after the winter and having shifter problems. I can see the upper shifter rides on top of the lower shifter(where outdrive mates to gimbal unit) almost as if the lower shifter needs to be lifted and if i use my fingers in there the lower one can be lifted to sit in the upper one. Now my synch is probably off when I have to mate the two shifters together again. help please.
another tangent, when installing the outdrive i used the trim switch to move pistons in/out to mate with drive, the down switch stopped functioning, no motor noise or anything yet the up switch and trailer functions still worked, I then manually exerted force downwards on pistons when attached to drive and the switch started working again , however it seems like the piston does not retract fully,
