Checking Shift Operation - Mercruiser I/O

Recommended Posts

With stern drive unit installed and engine running, check to ensure that drive unit shifts properly, as explained following:

1. Shift into forward and reverse gear, making sure that clutch engages before engine begins to accelerate.

2. Accelerate engine while in forward and reverse gear to ensure that engine does not "kill".

3. Check that shift cutout switch roller is centered in notch of cutout lever with drive unit in forward and reverse gear.

4. If engine accelerates before clutch engages, if engine "kills" on acceleration, or if shift cutout switch roller is not centered (in forward or reverse gear), shift cable must be readjusted.
