Good morning, my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with?

Did you remove the entire sterndrive from the boat? Or did you remove just the lower unit, leaving the upper unit still bolted in place?

Cables are not adjustable, they get set to a specific length and that's it. Was everything shifting correctly before you took the sterndrive off?
