afterl ooking a little more i found the other one that i remember right is right on top towards the back of the motor. just a sensor that screws into the case and has a copper washer under it. and i read that the copper washer was to thick and not allowing the sensor ot make the connection it needed? i did find one that was thinner then what came on it but i mstill having the same spitting and sputtering problem as before.
so im wondering if i just replace that neutral switch assembly if that will more then likely fix my problem?
thanks for any help
To confirm it's a problem with the switch on top of the tranny. Ground the wire going to that switch and if the sputtering stops you will know the problem is with that particular switch. You can leave it grounded if you want but the rev indicator lite on the pod will stay lit or you can try removing the washer and use thread sealant on the switch or get new switch and washer. This is called the "reverse limiter override mod". The rev/neutral switch is a common problem on the early models.
