worn throttle shift safety

The shifter in my boat has become worn to where you don't have to lift up on the safety to get it to go into forward or reverse. It looks like the spring has broken maybe? I thought I saw a thread on here somewhere on how to rebuild that but can't find it. Anyone remember that thread or have rebuilt a shifter that can shed some light on what is necessary to repair it?

I also thought I'd seen a thread recently and couldn't find it either. Found this though: http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/...65&postcount=7

I fixed mine.. if it's the spring go to hardware store.. if it's the metal piece that holds it then that's another story...

Thanks guys. I believe it to be the spring. Wondered how it comes apart and goes together.

I'm having the same problem and have a couple pictures in my first post too. No need to pull it apart to get to the spring, just loosen up the allen screw at the bottom and pull off the lever to get to what you need. Unfortunately my metal piece is completely worn and I haven't found a solution yet...

Midwest MC said I might be able to flip the metal piece upside down but that didn't work for me either, maybe you'll have some luck with that tip!

And if you do find a solution please share it! My brother in law said he might be able to duplicate the piece for me, if I look into it I'll just have him make a bunch.

I was able to file the sides of that metal piece and sharpen up the edges so that it worked again.
