    you can try an adjustment what you give to forward you will take away from reverse but you will probably need a new clutch dog maybe forward gear I can't remember if you can get the gears separate

    Make sure that your boat still doesnt have the original black ribbed shift cable to the drive make sure it is a salmon colored cable. You will need to put a gear set in the lower unit it will include the clutch dog with more back cut into to hold the clutch into the gear better. There was a recall on these back in the late 80's early 90's that is no longer in affect.
