Have Boat Questions? Ask a Boat Repair Expert.
Hi Norman, my name is Jason.
Is this an OMC or a Mercruiser, you wrote both?
When was the last time it shifted into gear, have you ever seen this shift into gear personally?
Hi Norm, are you still with me? Do you still need help with this?
What is the model number on the sterndrive? If you are not sure, can you take a picture of it for me.
I have no way of looking this up by boat. In order to help I would need to know specifically what you have.
Hello. My name is Tan.
You have one of 2 things a broken shift cable or the drive is messed up. Can you check the gear lube in the drive to eliminate the drive as possible issue?
If the lube in the drive is clean with no glitter or milky lube then we have to check the shift cable.
Post back with findings and questions.
Ok Norm. Your welcome.
