I have a tunnel hull w/ 460 bbf and it has a top loader casale v-drive. It worked ok for a while but was put in and out of gear while running and destroyed the shift dogs. I'm mechanically inclined but not familiar with v-drives. I opened the shift box and appears to be a 2 dog because there are 2 male features on the gear and 2 female features where the two lock together to put it "in-gear". Also, the shift fork is worn considerably and moves or turns a little bit in the shaft that the shift handle attaches to. I dont know if is supposed to move like it is or if it should have no play at all. If someone could help me with locating the parts I need and some instructions on how to replace them that would be awesome. I havn't got to9 run my boat at all this season and its almost over. I am also open to replacing with a newer model that would swap out easily f someone has one to sell. got about $1000 to work with. Thanks so much, Sean Moore, Payson AZ.

When I first got this v-drive I was mis-informed on how to put it in and out of gear and now I'm paying for it

I just got done fixing motor mounts, starter and battery problems, trailer issues (lost wheels off the trailer). have not had any time on the water this year so far. I'm bummed and frustrated. boat and trailer was poorly maintained by previous owner and everything that could go wrong has.
