So if I understand you correctly, you suggest disconnect at helm end and move shifter to see if it binds? I replaced the "barrel connector" at the engine where the cable connects to the engine - that $100 part made very little difference. I think I will do what you say and while I have it off I may replace the cable. Is there any merit to tightening the cable (ie: shortening it) to tighten up the system?

I am assuming the linkage you are referring is the cable that runs from shift to engine correct?

Thanks. My concern in burning out my transmission as it is always slightly engaged??
