Lower Shift Cable Install
I'm sliding in my new lower shift cable jacket and can't seem to get it through the transom, I hit metal. I have the fish wire in place and have threaded it through the new cable jacket. I put the cable jacket through the shift bellows housing and it goes about 3 inches then hits metal. I've tried having a helper push the cable jacket while I mess with the fish wire from the engine side with no luck. I guess this is a just a "keep trying" scenario but would like to hear any suggestions you have.
I knew things were going too well with this maintenance. I got the drive off and replaced the gimbal bearing and bellows in record time. This was the last step.
