Ok I'm new to boating and there is something I can't figure out yet. I have a merc 850 with a mercontrol console, my question is the reverse lock out for the pin in the motor that locks it so it doesn't move up when it goes into reverse is there a switch to release them to hook on the pin? I have searched up and down the motor for a switch to release the latches so they will hook over the pin and I cannot find one. So this leaves me to assume either A) I'm supposed to put the pin on in the water because if I do it on the trailer the motor touches ground or B) that I put the pin in and when the motor is put into reverse while running it releases the latches around the pin. It has to be a mechanical switch as there are no electronics around and the bar attached to the latches goes down into the bottom casing by the prop which leads me to believe it is the motor movement that lifts the switch. if anyone has a similar motor or system please inform me of how this works as I would much prefer to not have to dive off the back every time I'm unloading this thing.
