Customer Question

I just picked up a new honda BF20D3SRT outboard today from my dealer.
we drove it and it stopped running forward and reverse. It starts and idles fine. When you push the remote lever forward, it revs higher but doesn't engage for forward (or reverse) motion.

Expert:  Charles replied 8 months ago.

With the engine off, can you shift into FWD and then try to turn the prop. I am looking to see if the shaft is turning or if it is not but you can still turn the prop.

I'll try that in the morning.

Great. I normally log on around noon CST. I'll reply as soon as I get on.
