    Ok I keep reading forums and trying different things but I am still out of luck. I have forward gear and neutral but my reverse is just barely catching. I have set my shift cable at the 6" for forward and then I try to set the reverse but the adjustment slot is just a little off for me to line it up. Has anyone machined the slot to go just a little further or is there something else I am missing? It has a pre alpha out drive 898. Is there another adjustment I am missing. Any and all help is appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    Very frustrated right now. It was working great until I replaced the impeller and the housing. Darn preventive maintenance

    Probably the shift arm is one slot over. It changes the neutral position.
