Hello, my name is***** will assist you.
Would you please post the serial number of the engine?
Got it thanks.
Have you checked to see if the prop will turn?
Ok, to get the shift totally aligned you are going to need to wiggle the upper shift shaft slightly to get the splines correct. I use a small pair of vise grips locked to the shaft so my hands are free.
If there are more than one of you there, you can wiggle the shift shaft from where the cable connects to the link arm, inside the cowling.
Take your time. There are no time limits here.
