Can't find neutral!

I have a 27' catalina (1987)that I recently purchased w/ a 14hp diesel engine that I can't seem to find neutral on. It slips from foward to reverse w/ no stop in between. How can I adjust that?

try shifting directly from the arm at the engine side with cable remove. you'll know where the problem lies, gearbox or shifter (at pedestal).
