I pulled the Mariner 55 microfiche form Ishopmarine (all my repairs have been done using the Clymer Mariner book - they are the same engine bar the paint job!) There isn't a huge amount of mechanism to go wrong down there.
What doesn't it do? Does it just not select, is it stuck in one gear, is it just stuck? does it jump out & rattle a lot when you open the throttle in one or both directions? It may just need an adjustment to the mechanism up at the top or your remote cable end fitting!
If you have >1 engine (memory says you have a siezed one?) I bet there will be enough bits between them to get a decent 'box out the pile of bits.
Oh, and probably best not to phone the "cut it open" adviser for a quote!
