What you want to do first is see if the clutch mechanism is frozen up or not. To do this, remove the propeller. Remove the back cover. Disconnect the shift cable from the shift selector. Start the engine up. And then attempt to shift it by hand by rotating the shift selector. Is that something you can do?

When you wrote "throttles work in forward an reverse, outdrives wont go into forward gear or reverse, boat was setting for three years". Are you running the engine or are you just pushing the throttle lever forward with the engine off?
