90 Yam gear problems

Looking for some advice guys please.

Re-rigged my engine yesterday and had a trial run today. I'm having problems engaging reverse gear, seems that something is not engaging/ lining up, therefore getting the nasty gear noises and no drive. Weird thing is its not all the time, sometimes it engages fine. Heeeelp!

Assume you have tried to adjusting the cable. It will be the spline on the gear select shaft or the top engine mounts are shot. Failing that clutch dog.

So what is the correct procedure for setting up the cables? I had engine and remotes in neutral then adjusted cable ends so they went straight on without partially engaging anything.
Have I done anything stupid?

No. It should work.Will it go into gear properly without the cable on?.

Disconnect the cable at the outboard, it should go in and out of gear ok, slightly turn the prop if not to aline the gears. Then once in reverse check it stays in gear by turning the prop a little each way. But you must make sure that the engine can't start! By removing killcord and may be ht leads?

Check the cable has been positioned properly where it enters the outboard.

If its all ok, put outboard and controls in neutral and the adjust the end of the cable so it just slips on. Fit clip and test again......

While your there have a look at the gear linkage down the leg if you can see it to make sure it's tight.
