Hello, thank you for requesting me today.
Did the rod come out of the shift mechanism on top or from the lower unit?
That arm actually goes into part 21 in the diagram. Use a good flashlight and look to see if you can see part 32 to see if the retaining arm is broken off it. If so, you may actually be able to just remove the shift handle, make the repair then reinstall it and while putting it in, insert the upper shift rod. You may be able to see things better with the carb off.
If you need me to look at something, please post a pic of it here.
Sounds good. I will be here.
