Evinrude 65hp 65853B Shift lever stuck

I recently bought a boat with a 65HP Evinrude motor that i'm attempting to get running. I've disconnected the shift cable and the shift lever it attaches to seems to be stuck in place. Am i missing a saftey feature/switch? Since it sat for a while could it be corroded to the point of not moving at all? Any info would be greatly appriciated. Thanks

Yes, it will be corroded. Just have to find where.
Look to remove the cable from the link arm in the motor.
Can you now set the throttle lever in fwd and rev? Does the cable moves? If Yes, it's in your engine that you have trouble. If no, disconnect cable at the throttle lever and re-check...
If it's the engine: Remove the gearhousing. If now you have movement, the gear housing is stuck ( water inside that has corroded everything, good luck)
If still no movement, check the linkage, you'll have to remove the engine block from the exhaust plate.
The best is to find a service manual to get the right way to disassemble and reassemble...

It is the shift cable. It is a dealer item, about 70 dollars. Plus there is a new bracket they will sell you to cure the problem.

SOURCE: The transmission shift lever on the column feels diconnected.

This is probably to late to help the original poster but it may help others. My 2001 Tribute did the same thing. I would check the connection under the hood first because it is easier to reach. It is between the airbox and firewall directly in from of the driver. It will probably require a flashlight to see but that is where mine was disconnected.

Unfortunately before realizing that I removed the black plastic shroud from the bottom of the steering column. The shift cable connects underneath the the column a few inches in front of the steering wheel. It is connected with a push on connection.

Both connectors have a rubber gasket inside the loop connector that dry rotted in the engine bay. I'm sure it would be easier to simply run a new shift cable but I was strapped for cash at the time and simply hooked it back on and placed a spring clip washer outside it to hold it on.

I hope this helps everyone!

What oil do I use in a 1972 Starcraft Boat? Thank you.


Back during the time these were made, you would be advised to use a 30 HD.
This oil would be appropriate for all use except real cold weather, when a 20W-20 would be better. ( below 40 degrees farenheit)
(Do not use a non-detergent.)
A few years later, the recommendation changed to 10W-30.
