    You might try putting the handle in the neutral position and see where the reverse bucket is. If you're going forward while in neutral try and adjust the bucket down a half turn or so on the cable and see where that puts you at.

    When in nuetral the bucket is like 3/4 open almost wide how do you adjust the cable to go down?assuming it should be like 1/2 to 3/4 closed for nuetral any pics may help. Do you take the pen out of the nut and move those nuts up and down? Or somewhere else?

    If you cant move the ones at the bucket far enough, you will have to make the adjustment at the other end of the cable where it attaches to the shifter.

    What about at the handle? Can't you loosen the set screw and rotate it where you want it and the press the control handle back on?

    Yea you might see if you can get some more adjustment at the handle. Maybe that'll give you some room to move it around.

    Seems like mine have all tended to go forward some when the handle was straight up, wasn't ever anything I was worried enough about because I could move the handle more to reverse and stop it pretty much. I think he's just trying to find the sweet spot where it won't move as much either direction when in the neutral (not forward or reverse) position.

    Not sayin one might not find some "nuetral middle ground" , My FIL for example had his "adjusted" to where he would leave it tie nose and tail to thier dock and "let it warm up" it would still drag the dock fore or aft a bit , Jet boats: reverse is marginal and they back up like a fork lift
