Volvo TAM 74 C/L: I have twin Volvo 430 hp TAM 74C marine engines

Customer Question

I have twin Volvo 430 hp TAM 74C marine engines with a Volvo wireless shifter.
There is always a slight lag when shifting into gear which is normal.
Recently when shifting into forward on the port engine the lag time has doubled. It goes into gear after 1001. 1002. 1003
Should I be concerned?
