C&C 30 MK1 Shift cable Help... Please

I have just installed a new tome engine in my 30MK1 The shift cable is good condition. Disconnected from the shift lever, I get smooth action all the way threw the stroke. The shift lever on the tranny smooth as well, But when I hook them up it takes a lot of pressure to move? The old engine I just took out was a bit hard to shift as well? Any help on this would be great. Has anybody had this problem? I need help. I have spent 4 evenings working on it moving it around trying to re-adjust it. I'm at my end??
Thanks, lt

Stiff shifter on Mark II

I wish you would get some help on this, I need to take my shifter apart too (very stiff) and check it out. Throttle is fine, the boat is new to me, but I have to get in there and see what's going on before I smack a dock. CAT30 MKII
