Default boat repair question

I have a 1992 bayliner 3.0 mercruiser It wont start unless I pull the shifter out and push it forward then when I put it in nuetral it shuts off, I cleaned the carburetor so I know thats not the problem, so what could it be ?? It cranks in neutral but wont start ??

Honestly if you know nothing about boats it would be in your best interest to have it looked at by someone that does. you are going to spend more money in the long run trying to do it by yourself, also if you have any hair now, you wont when you get done.
with that said, there is a micro switch in the control box, that prevents it from starting in gear, this interupts the ign. switch, there is also a micro switch on the shift bracket that interupts the ign. fire to the plugs and kills a couple of cylinders momentarly when shifting. hope this helps.

Thanks for all the help. I guess it would be better to have it looked at because I'm a rookie lol

The micro switches mentioned above are from the shift cable, and yes you could be chasing your tail trying to find the issue. Take it to one of the members on here, I have heard great things about their repairs. You don't want your family on the water in a boat you are not confident about. If you want your wife to go out more than once.
