Yanmar SD20 saildrive stuck in reverse

Still have not solved this issue (my friendly diesel guru is off on a delivery trip ) The port diesel on my cat got stuck in reverse as I was maneuvering onto my swing mooring. Would like to try fixing it myself. Would like any advice that could help. The engine is not new but still runs well.

Re: Yanmar SD20 saildrive stuck in reverse

Well, this sometimes happens with our 4JH (NOT a saildrive) when someone puts it into reverse while sailing. I DON'T KNOW IF THIS WILL HURT YOUR SAILDRIVE, but, we just start it in reverse and then put it into neutral.
