I've been struggling to get my OMC remote controls from a 1992 120 Johnson to lock into neutral or the "trolling speed" consistently. I usually have to move the handle around to get the engine to start and then be very diligent to keep it at low speeds at the same time.

This has gradually gotten worse over time but I'm not sure where the breakdown is. I've checked the little ball (part #13 in attached) that is supposed to lock in place and I've replaced the neutral safety switch above it because the old one was a bit loose. Neither of those fixed the issue.

Has anyone else had this issue or know what would be causing it?

I've attached the remote control diagram.
