You'll get used to the jargon soon!
The Teleflex/Morse throttle/shift has 2 cables. A throttle cable and a shift cable. The shift cable goes to the shift assembly and the throttle cable runs round to a mount just before the carburettor.
The shift assembly translates it's movements from the shift on the throttle assembly to the shift cable which runs through the transom shield and then into the stern drive to the shift shaft and then to the gearbox at the bottom of the stern drive.
The more I think about this the more I am convinced it's not the throttle interrupt switch. You were told that idle revs were too high, so they have been lowered and it was fine before hand, therefore at lower idle revs it should be easier to shift. Plus if you have a Bravo drive, I'm not sure if they have interrupt switches?
Bassboat, what do you think?
It's entirely possible that you do have some wear somewhere and the whole thing was previously adjusted up to work fine, but when it's adjusted to correct tolerences the wear has shown up.
There is one other more nasty problem, which is unlikely, but possible. Water may have got into the stern drive cable, via a faulty shift bellows, if you notice it's wet at the assembly, this would cause the sticking.
As bassboat said previously, there could be several reasons and each one requires elimination.
I'm going with the muppet theory though and think he has adjusted the shift assembly incorrectly.
If you can post the photos here as well that would be good.

I am just as confused as the other one! Yes, we are one and the same, sorry to confuse long story.
