  • Mercruiser Shift cable tools

    Alright guys I am confused. Motor is in, getting ready to adjust new lower shift cable.

    98 Mercrusier BajaIslander 7.4l Mpi Bravo one.

    In my Mercruiser service manual #11. On page 2A-35 they show using a plastic (part #91-12427) adjusting tool and a lengthy procedure.

    Then on page 4A-26(same manual) they show a much shorter adjusting procedure using a two piece steel adjustment tool set.(91-17262).

    Are these two ways to get to the same place.
    Which one do I want?

    2A-35 is used to adjust cable without drive being installed

    4A-26 (actually pages prior) are to adjust older style cable which requires cable specific procedures

    The bottom of 4A-26 is just about plug and play. If you have the new style cable which has the barrel nut penned in place. Just make sure the 3 inch dimension on the shift plate has been adjusted, and install the cable
