Hi Pat, my name is Jason.
Go back to the engine and locate the shift plate, this is usually on the top left hand side of the motor. The shift plate is where the upper and lower shift cables attach. The upper shift cable is the one that runs up to the shifter handle. Does that cable move when you move the shifter handle back and forth?
Make sure you do this with the engine running, as they will not shift properly with the engine off. Let me know what happens.
Hi Pat, good morning and sorry for the delay. When you replied back last night I was already off to bed.
When the cables are disconnected, is the shifter handle moving at all, or is it not moving?
