Gear Shifter Problems

On DreamChaser we have had a problem where the gear shifter lever does not quite go into gear before the throttle starts to accelerate.

The way the single throttle lever works are that the motion will move the shifter lever into position (forward or reverse) and then as you pull the lever further the throttle accelerates.

Today I wanted to see how it all works.  I need to remove the shifter, clean and lubricate it (just because it is there) and I will need to find the adjustments to allow it to go into reverse.

In the video below I mounted a camera in the engine room and one on the helm to capture how the motion of the lever works.
