SOURCE: I have a Mariner outboard
In order to disconnect the gearshift linkage from the gearshift operating handle, a safety clip was rotated about 90 degrees clockwise. Once in this position, if you pull the safety clip towards you, it comes completely out, which then permits the gearshift rod to seperate from the operating lever.

With your lower unit off have someone shift the engine into forward while watching the gear shift select shaft's rotation,let gearshift remain in forward,now place your lower unit in forward and reinstall. In the future just put engine in forward when installing a water pump as there won't be a need to move gearshift

It means both cam sensors are outIf you get this code, the first thing to check is your distributor especially if you have an imported vehicle. Look for signs of oil in the distributor which can contaminate the signals being monitored by the ecm (engine computer).Check also the wiring leading to the distributor and see if the wires are properly insulated away from hot exhaust which could burn the wires. Do these checks also on the crank sensor itself whether it is located in the front of the engine or at the flywheel at the rear of the engine. Ditto for the cam sensor of syc.

If you have carburetors your float is stuck. It can happen more than it should and if it is a smaller engine, laying it on its side can cause it.
You would have to look at the float and imagine which way to lay the engine down in the future. The float could also be bad. You would take it out and float it in Gas, not water to see if it sinks.
If this is a big HP outboard and injected your fuel regulator is bad.
