    help! problem shifting into reverse and back to nuetral

    Alright guys I need your help. The other day I replaced my impeller on my 1995 mercury force 40hp due to overheating issues. Before I replaced the impeller it shifted perfectly fine. Now when I shift forward it's smooth, no grinding and locks in good but when shifting into reverse there is now a little bit of gear grind and even more when going back into nuetral. I'm assuming I need to adjust the shift linkage but to be honest I'm not sure exactly how. The linkage has a stopper nut on the lower unit side of the linkage and I just tightened the upper linkage down like it was when I removed it. Could someone walk me through exactly what I need to do. Probably something simple just having one of those moments.

    Changing the oil would be the first thing to try.

    I did that today thinking the same thing. It did get a little bit better but only slightly.
