I have a mariner 150 that I recently changed the water pump

Customer Question

Hi Pearl, I have a mariner 150 that I recently changed the water pump on. Everything works great now except it won't go into gear!
JA: Sometimes boat issues seem like they'll be really complicated, but end up being easy to fix. The Marine Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so the Marine Mechanic can help you best.
Customer: motor won't go into gear after changing water pump
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Marine Mechanic should know?
Customer: mariner 150
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Marine Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.

Hello my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with?

Can I get the model or serial number on the engine please.

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Hey Jason,
I'm Al. The engine is a mariner 150. I don't have the serial number here at work
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
I believe it's a 1992 model
Expert:  Jason replied 4 months ago.

Hi Al, I would need the information on the ID plate on the clamp bracket just to know what you have. Without it I simply don't know which engine you have. There are no time limits here, do you want to get back to me later on when you have the model/serial info?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
yeah, i'll come back around 5
Expert:  Jason replied 4 months ago.

Okay sounds good. Once I know what you have we can take it from there.

Hi Al, any luck with that serial number?
