I've a Yanmar
with a KH3-P gearbox
and an Edson pedestal
. I suspected that the cable wasn't adjusted correctly, so I removed it from the gearbox
side and took some measurements. The control cable I have is a Morse D32377-003.
According to the service
manual, from Neutral to Forward or Reverse, you should have a minimum of 1.42-inches of travel, or 2.84-inches overall. My cable measures only 2.75-inches overall and the neutral to Reverse length is definitely shorter than the forward.
There are no adjustments on the shift lever. Mounted on the end of the cable is a connection fork. Do I change the adjustment by screwing the end piece in/out - or by getting a longer end? Or do I need to move the whole cable at the clamp inside the pedestal
. (which is halfway down the inside of the pedestal and almost impossible to see)
