    It starts easy, and the idel is perfect it just won't shift into any gear. The prop turns freely. Could it be the teeth on the gears, or the whole lower unit?

    You'll have to give some more details. What does it do or sound like when you push the throttle forward to shift it into gear? When the motor is not running and the throttle is pushed forward, does the prop still turn freely?

    It possibly has a busted shear pin. Pull the fly wheel and check it out.

    I DIDN'T EVEN CHECK IF THE PROP STILL TURNS IN GEAR. Ill check that out tongiht and keep you all posted. When you put it in gear it only sounds like its in neutral. No grinding or anything like that its like it's not even engageing just staying in neutral.

    Billy I am assuming that you have taken the cowling off and had some one check the movement of the shifter arm while trying to get into gear.


    I am also assuming that this is a remote stearing with shifting cables.

    I know this sounds real obvious, but have you made sure that the knob (button) on the controller is pressed all the way in before pushing the throttle forward? If the knob is pulled out, when you press the throttle forward it only revs it in neutral. Pushed in makes it go into gear as you push the throttle forward.

    The model number and serial number are not on the transom bracket with Chryslers but rather on a metal plate under the cowling directly under the carb. The model number will start with "45."

    Take the cable loose from the shifter at the motor and then try to put it in gear. The cable could be out of adjustment or just plain streached.

    The cabels are working good, and I know about under the crowling. But the plate is gone all that is left is a little peice of where it was at. It will shift into gear when it is not started, but when you start the motor it just dosn't shift? Imm really tired of this motor, but I don't have enough money right now to buy another one.
