    MSX reverse mechanism

    I need the reverse mechanism for a MSX 140/Virage/Genesis. It cannot be from a MSX 110/150 as they are different. I have one here from a 110/150 and it does not bolt up to my hull. I don't need the lever, I already have 2 of those, just the mechanism. I checked Ebay and they have nothing.

    Genesis is different, it has the electronic reverse. I may have Virage parts in a hull out back, I'll see if there any good when it stops raining.

    I thought the later Genesis went from the electric reverse to a manual lever. That would be awesome if you had one.

    I did not know that!

    What is different about the way the mechanism mounts to the hull?

    i ask as all my spare hardware is in storage right now.

    The whole mechanism is different. Not just the mounting

    I know it is built differently but for whatever reason I thought the reverse cable throw and the hull mounting were effectively the same.

    I presume you did try positioning the new mechanism in the hull and there is some issue?

    It's there, but seems frozen. May just be the cable. Now its snowing here but it's supposed to go up to 40 something tomorrow. I'll pull it out & see what's up with it. Do you need the cable too?

    I just need the whole mechanism that mounts inside the hull. I have the cable and the reverse handle. Im sure the cable is just frozen.

    The MSX reverse handle is different from Virage.

    Virage reverse handle has the retaining bolt for the handle going in from the outside, under a plastic plug cap.

    MSX reverse handle has the retaining bolt coming into the handle from inside the hull. The handle itself is a different shape too.

    Do you still want me to pull those parts? or is this not going to work for you?
