    Default XR drive spinning prop by hand in neutral.......

    It has a spot where it gets hard to spin? In one full rotation it happens 1/4 of the rotation. And the hard spot is at a different clock position every time? Does this mean pull drive apart or normal? Don't think it was there before.

    I don't believe it should. My standard Bravo turns smooth 360deg. Take off the prop turn the shaft, see if it still is tight for part of the rotation. Once during re-install of my prop, I had a similar issue, turns out I was about to install the prop wrong. Hope it's something that simple.

    Well after checking fluid for contamination. The hard spot is gone? The fluid was a little on the full side but don't think that would matter? May be some psi built up in case some where?

    Move the shifter a little in either direction and see if the drag goes away. So pull the shifter back some and test prop drag, and then try to push forward some and test. If it does, it's just a cable adjustment.

    Mine has had a hard spot since I put it on the boat over 200 hours ago. I wouldn't worry too much about it. I was concerned at first as well, but it's been living a long time with this.
