I have a 96 model Evinrude 3cyl tiller steer that seems to go into forward just fine but not reverse. I don't see any access plates on the side of the engine for connector rod adjustments. Any ideas on where to start would be greatly appreciated. Motor has been sitting about a year since last used with tarp over it. Changed out gas in tank, put on fresh battery and it started right up but can't get reverse to work.

You need to drop the gearcase and see if you can manually shift the gearcase into reverse. If the shift rode will not physically move to the reverse position you will need to disassemble the gearcase. Cool
