Honda 90 gear shift issue
I have a problem with the gear shifting on my Honda 90 and wondered if anyone has a similar issue or could offer advice.
The engine is connected to a Honda side mounted control using teleflex cables.
When i shift forward, it will engage. If i shift into reverse, it won't engage and just graters. The engine will shift fine with the cable removed and the shift shaft turned by hand. If i adjust the shift cable i can get the engine to shift into reverse, but now it won't shift into forward. It appears that these must be some play in either the cables or the side mounted control.
I could replace either or both the cables and the control, but before I spend money replacing anything, i was wondering if anyone could offer any advice as to how i can pinpoint the issue?
