Default Can I adjust the interrupter?

Hi, Ted from NYC here. I'm new to the club. I think this is great. I have a 99 2300SC w/the Merc 5.0. I just changed the carb and all of the cables last week. The shift interrupter does not knock the rpm's down when I shift. I can manually puch the lever down onto the sensor and it works. I tried adjusting the cable from one extreme to the other to no avail. Am I missing something? Thanks.

Lotti, I have the Merc service manual for that boat (mines a 95, same powertrain). I'll take a look and post what I find.
