evinrude 100 HP
I'm having a problem with the control box ( power pilot), it was stuck in reverse, i took control box apart and replaced a broken shift lock out, also a new cable which was a little stiff.
the shift lever assembly and the shift throttle plate gears were not meshing, i took the shift throttle plate off and realined gears.
it works ok now when moved from reverse to forward, exept when shift handle is pushed far forward the shift lever assembly gears do not mesh with gears on shift throttle plate when i try to move handle back to neutral.
does anyone have any experiance with this type of problem?

I believe the old Power Pilot box was used from 1973 through 1977 and used the old style cables with bare wire at each end where you had to attach the fittings with allen screws or regular screws, is that a correct description of your control?

The factory recommends that a properly trained technician service your Johnson or Evinrude outboard motor. Should you elect to perform repairs yourself, use caution, common sense, and observe safety procedures in the vicinity of flammable liquids, around moving parts, near high-temperature components, and working with electrical or ignition systems.
The information offered here is only general in nature and should not be construed as complete factory approved procedures, techniques, or specifications. Always use the proper service manual for your motor, up-to-date service literature, the correct tools, and have an understanding of how to proceed with troubleshooting and repair methods. If you are unsure or uncomfortable with a procedure, a situation, or a technique, enlist the services of a factory trained technician.
no, they changed in 1979 (the old style was used untill 1978), but it was still called power pilot, this has the newer cable ends.
if i can't fix this one, question is what years are compatable with this model?
