Hi, I have an MD11C with the MSB inline gearbox and I've re-built both - Since I don't have the saildrive though, I can't picture the gear change linkage on your 'box. Post a picture of the linkage on the box if you can, and I'll do what I can to help.
When I replaced my linkages, I had to fiddle around with the end terminals to get exactly the right distance between the centre position of my single-lever morse control and the neutral position on the gearbox. It's not a very wide band of movement between being in reverse and being in forward.
