Anybody had issue with the reverse/forward /neutral lever. 9 hours showing on my 2007 - C180/4tec scic but truthfully has possibly double that and the reverse lever is some pain in the ass to shift.
When going to forward does not always latch unless you really crank it into position. Of course you cannot get any throttle if it is not in proper position. Coming back to neutral is also a bitch and obviously is not safe either in an emergency. There is one advantage-Wifey cant use the boat.
Is the cable at fault. Has anybody changed this cable and can it be done relatively easy (DIY). I put some penetrating fluid on the bar that connects to the pin lever assembly just after the small boot and then moved the reverse gate up and down. Small droplets of water seem to be ejected. I am wondering if the seal could go here and that the water is creating pressure resulting in the stiff lever at the helm. Cable is apparently $165
How many Dess keys are supplied new. I only got one but would like a spare.
Mind your fingers on that fibreglass /matting or whatever it is called especially around where the poles for the extra bow filler cushions are stored. It can sink deep. Lots of little bits floating in the bilge. Cannot be good for the water pumps. Vacuum them up before trouble starts.
Small scratch on starboard blue Decal ($162)-expensive
I bet those ceramic washers are going to go next.
What about letting it go and trading it for a Sugar Sands
