Please can somebody help me who knows what they're doing? I've searched and searched and now I have to bug you guys. A friend and I took out the drive shaft from the very bottom of my 1976 7.5 hp sea king. I thought I was being cautious doing it this way and not splitting the bottom end from the top powerhead. That was stupid...dumb!! cause now i don't know how to hook the linkage back together so it will shift into forward from nuetral and back, which is all it has. I have a good idea on how the system works but i can't seem to make any sense of how to put it back together and have it do what it's supposed to do...shift into gear and back. So i hope and seriously appreciate any help that you guys from this kick___ forum can provide. Thank you, cweklund
