Question about Boating
Ive adjusted the cables but cant get it to go forward
Try disconnecting the throttle cable and then operate the shift lever. You either have the two cables reversed or the gas side is too far one way and it is throwing you out of range for the shift.
The cables come to a fulcrum point in the shifter box. If one of the ends on the motor side is too far in one direction, the other cable can not travel. Even after disconnecting from the carb you may have to screw the connector to allow more travel in the gas cable so the shift works.
