flipping a Morse controller

I just swapped my BMW D7 for a Yanmar 1GM. The operation went smoothly. The only problem I have is that the Forward/Reverse pattern of the Morse controller is now opposite of what it was -- I have to pull back to put it in forward gear. Is there a way to flip the internals of the controller so that forward is forward?

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

It's an integral single lever unit. What do you mean by swapping cable ends?

I think SD meant mounting the cable on the gearbox the other way round, or alternatively, moving the cable from one side of the leaver mechanism to the other. - Which is what I did.

I also swapped a BMD for a Yanmar, but didn't have any problems. If it's a single lever (throttle and shift control), why can't you just turn the control around and flip the name plate around as well? The controls seem to be equally symetrical in design so they should work either way it's mounted. If that doesn't work, you may have to route the cables to the engine in an alternate direction.

Yes, it's the single lever. I'll try that. I'll see if I can just flip the whole controller 180-degrees and remount the arm.
