Mate.4 years no use?Get the WD40 out and start spraying everything that moves.Let it sit and then do it all again.You can't use too much.Cast alloys will always "soak" in salt etc.It will then come out and seize up any moving parts.Just be patient and keep spraying and moving the parts to help the WD work it's way in.Hope this helps you

2015 mercury 4 stroke 6hp won't shift out of forward gear

Remove the top cover and turn the flywheel back and forth and move the lever to Neutral. Sounds like a tight mesh of the gears holding the selector.

Stiff gear changing

I presume this is a 5 speed manual transmission? Is it actually the gear lever that is stiff to work through the gear changes?
first thing to do is drain and refill the gearbox with new oil.
while you are under there, check that the linkages are not rusted or crudded up. If so, free them up and lubricate them well.

New clutch cable made gear change much worse.


Had a recent similar problem. Fortunately, my replacement cable is adjustable. As the new cable stretched, I had to take a crowbar to the the throwout lever next to the battery and lever it back while pulling off the cable (towards the battery). I then lifted the fuse box (look out for the 10mm plastic nut that holds it in on the side by the driver's side fender) on the drivers side right in front of the windshield to reach down and pull the cable up enough to reach the adjustor. When it is high enough, release the locknut and turn the adjusting nut upwards about 4 turns (both nuts on my cable were 17mm and a "stubby" is handy but not necessary. Grab the end by the battery and, making sure it is seated on the groove on the transmission, pry the lever again with the crowbar and reseat tg
he cable end in the lever. I have had to readjust the cable twice more before it settled in a comfortableplace, but once you get the hang of it, it only takes about 10 minutes.

Hope this is helpful.

Shifting gears very stiff.

I am afraid I bare bad news... the transmission is suffering from swollen selector fork bushings. ATF fluid swells the bushings up, it used to be what was used to lubricate the transmission. however ford has long ago changed the specs to what is called Ford Honey manual trans oil its has a brown honey color or royal purple synchomax. they only fix for this is to replace the selector forks and inly use ford honey manual trans oil. there is a TSB issued for the fluid.
