277RE: [j4x-owners-group] engine control at Edson pedestal
- Sep 7, 2010
I think I saw the friction screw – is it located inside the rubber stopper that holds the plastic push pin for neutral? I did not loosen it but that would be an easy answer to the stiffness. Now I need to understand why the transmission seems to engage late.

Try loosening the friction screw.

I have a 2000 J42 and the single handle control on the pedestal is very stiff in moving through the motions of forward, neutral and reverse. As a result relatively quick engagement of either forward of reverse causes a jolt because the engine is starting to rev before the transmission engages. If the handle is moved slowly the transmission engages and no problem.
It seems I have two problems:
- The mechanism is very stiff – I took off the compass and could view the mechanism and it seemed to move properly but very stiff
- The engagement of the transmission either needs adjustment on the cable or it is the mechanism that is the problem
Anyone have a similar problem? Is so what was your fix?
Thanks for your help again
