Mercury Throttle Linkage Problem
We have a problem with the throttle/gear linkage on a Mercury 60 EFI.
It started out moving freely in reverse but would not go in to forward and neutral was slightly in gear, I spend ages adjusting the gear cable in the engine and managed to get neutral, just, the button clicks out on the leaver and you have to wiggle it to get it out of gear - not ideal.
The gear lever in the engine moves freely and with the gear cable disconnected the throttle lever moves freely too, but connect the gear cable back up and it's a s stiff as anything.
I've spent ages adjusting at the engine end but do I need to take the throttle control box off and adjust it that end - It's a real pain to get to which is why I've not tried it yet - of is it just a turn at a time on the gear cable.
