ok heres one for the merc mechanics. I got a 2003 merc opti 150 with both the jet unit and the prop unit. Dupont spinner and I are pretty quick on the change out, and have it down to less than an hour. Our bottleneck is putting the shift rod back on when we reinstall the lower prop unit. It's so darn tight it takes about 15 mins just for that. What I am looking for is a double ended shift cable, does it exist? Where do I go to look for it? Does somebody make custom control cables?
What we want to do is leave one end attached to the shift rod at the top of the motor and just disconnect the other end at the reverse bucket when we have the prop unit on. If we could find that little gem, we would have the change out down to about 15 mins.
Anybody got any Ideas?
