1983 3.5hp Mercury outboard
I am hoping someone can answer this question on my Mercury 3.5hp 2cycle outboard. The serial number is: 6298133. I believe it is a 1983 or 1984. Anyways, there is a shifter on the side of the engine with what appears to be 3 positions. I see the forward and the neutral positions, but can someone please tell me what the third position is? There is a symbol on the cowling, but I have not seen a marking like this concerning the shifter??
