Can't get into reverse ?


Recommended Posts

Hey all I noticed yesterday that I can't put my engine into reverse. Only forward and neutral. What could be some of the reasons for this ?

If it was working ok and then suddenly wouldn't go in to reverse it's most likely not a major problem. Take the cowling (cover) off the motor and follow the linkage movement when you put it in forward. See if something has slipped or fallen off. Make sure it will go in fwd and rev before you use the boat. Hope this helps. BN
