70 HP outboard motor will not go into forward gear? I has

Customer Question

Johnson 70 HP outboard motor will not go into forward gear? I has worked about an hour earlier, but then would not go into forward. Everywhere on the gear shift is reverse, so we backed it all the way to the boat ramp and loaded it out. What could it be?

Hi Darlene, my name is Jason.

With the engine off, push the shifter all the way forward and let me know if you can spin the propeller counter clockwise.
