stiff shifter cable
The morse cable used to control the shifter on my new yanmar is very stiff. I feel as though i have to push the shifter/throttle to the point of breaking to get it to go in gear. This problem didn't exist on my original engine. I disconnected the gear box and tested the shifter. It shifted very easily. I also tried manually manipulating the lever on the gear box. It does seem a little stiff, but not too bad.
Anyone ever had a problem like this?
