When I put my Johnson 110 VRO V-4 in gear, it makes a quick jerk once, and then its fine for the rest of the time..Until I put it in nuetral, and put it back in gear, then it does it again... once, then its fine, its only when i first it in gear at an idle speed.....Any ideas what this could be?

ya sounds like a slip. my boat (because im stupid lol) had to be fixed a few years back. i was easing it into gear. sounded like a grind then clunk it would engage. that easing was wearing off the corners of clutch. easing it into gear tears it up. snap it in fast and then go.

bobpaul diagnosed it when after i had lost 2 props. the motor would band every now and then. sounded like fuel air prob at first. but i had ruined my clutch and forward gear. i replaced them and its fine. your slipping when ya get that jerk. it may be to late but remember. faster ya pop in gear the better.

mine at speed was jerking every 10-20 seconds and that force was shearing my cotterpin and when i would stop the water pressure was pushing the prop right off.
