    Just had a water pump impeller put in my 25hp Johnson and took it out last night. Ran great but only problem is that it does not want to go into forward unless I pull the shift lever all the way forward with some pressure then it slides into gear. Before it would just go into gear when I pulled the lever forward. The motor is a 2000 model with the shifter on the front. I'd rather fix this myself if possible since the guy that fixed it is busy and not local to me. Thanks, Chris
