Johnson 150 linkage

I have a 2001 Johnson outboard 150 hp 2 stroke.
It seems to be having difficulty when I try and put it in reverse. Sometimes it goes in easy and sometimes it just grinds. Is the adjustment a difficult fix? Is it performed at the shift lever or at the engine? Do I need any special tools to perform the task?
Thank you

The adjustment is at the motor end under the engine cowl. Just pop the pin holding the cable in place and the shift lever on the engine will have a detent when it's in neutral. Remove the 3/8" bolt holding the cable in place and adjust the tumbler so the cable centered on the shift lever.

Does it seem to shift equal distances forword and reverse at the control box?

I will look and see if I remember those had a shift switch that would make the engine shut down a couple cyl to make it shift better.
