I own a Evinrude model 10020 and I am trying to find out if there was a adapter, to hook a teleflex type shifting cable to it . I have the clip attached directly to the carry handle but that puts the end of the teleflex at a really weird angle. It looks like there ought to be another bracket in there to straighten out the cable in relation to the shift lever. Does any here know if that was the case? maybe a part # ? Thanks in advanceMay 22, 2019 at 5:12 pm #175799
Isn’t that bracket there already? Perhaps it is broken off….May 22, 2019 at 6:04 pm #175801
Yep, part number 307469. They are model-specific. marineengine.com has them at a reasonable price.May 22, 2019 at 8:28 pm #175811
Here is a picture of what I have, perhaps my bracket [#34] is bent. As you can see there is a bit of sideways force on the shifting lever , it almost feels like I could install the quick connect pin through the shifting lever from the motor side.

Looks to me like the plastic casing guide on the end of the cable is warped. Or is it just me?May 23, 2019 at 5:36 am #175833
That casing is not warped, the bracket is putting enough side ways pressure on it to bend it . hence the question here. I thought perhaps I was missing another piece of the puzzle but mow it looks like that bracket must be misshapen .May 23, 2019 at 8:20 am #175834
I suppose it must be bent then. Usually they just break.
But FYI there are two kinds of the stainless steel lock that holds the cable to the bracket. The difference is the width of the slots that the cable trunion (plastic adjusting wheel) fits into. The old narrow slots are for the old non-adjustable trunnion, and the wide ones are for the adjustable plastic one like you have. I can’t decide if you have the correct one or not. But it’s in there, so I reckon it must the right one (?).May 23, 2019 at 10:55 am #175843
The mounting bracket may be bent out of alignment. I do have one of these models put away and will check it for alignment later today and compare it to yours.May 24, 2019 at 12:00 pm #175891
I think the problem is that someone has changed the shift handle, that is not the right one for the 59-60 bread box Evinrudes…The one shown on your engine is from a 61-63 10hp with the newer cowl/cover design….Changing that shift handle is pretty simple on this engine….Or, perhaps you could just have an aluminum block made up that would push the control cable outwards a bit to conform better with the later model shift handle….
Looks like a nice motor though!May 24, 2019 at 2:42 pm #175913
Thanks Frank, means a lot coming from you…..May 24, 2019 at 6:58 pm #175932
And so another outboard mystery is solved. I will try to get my hands on the correct shifting handle . Until then , I think I will make up either a spacer or perhaps a wedge to correct the angle of the end of the cable. Thanks to all for all the help. [and for the complement on this outboard ] Its not original, I sanded, etched, primed, and painted it, then applied new decals. Of course new impeller replaced the gear lube, just regular stuff that I do to all my outboards.
