    Default Throttle issues...

    Hey guys I have a quick question, when boat is tested on land F/N/R shift properly and work perfect. After putting boat in water on the other hand, while in forward boat will not switch to N but will pass N and go to Reverse. Now if you turn the engine off while moving forward very slow but in N position and turn engine right back on boat starts in N and not in gear? Any ideas? Baga 1985 V8 Mercruiser Thank you

    Ayuh,...... It sounds like the shift switch on the shift plate where the upper, 'n lower shift cables meet, is disconnected,.....

    Probably to hide the symptoms of a failin' lower shift cable,.....

    Btw,..... This should be posted in the Mercruiser forum,.....
