Sorry, I mis-typed.  The engine is a 225 HP Merc OB on a 22' Whitley cuddy.  You serviced it for me a couple years ago at your shop.

The control is a MPC 4000 Gen II.   The neutral lock bar can be squeezed, but the engine won't come out of neutral.  Throttle only button works as designed. 

When attempting to take out of neutral, slight movements of the control can be felt at the engine (cowl removed).  Manually spinning the prop does not fix the problem. 

All was fine at end of season last year.
