Customer Question

my boat broke down in the middle of the lake yesterday. I put the motor cover off and I noticed that there is a codder pin with a spring attached to move the throttle assembly. The pin was off and so it wasn't able to start. I was able to find a screw from the boat to use as a replacement. I got the boat started but then I couldn't get the motor to engage in drive or reverse. Can you help

Hello. My name is Tan.

Can you take a pic of the issue? From your description the pin is out of the control cable for shift.
