Unhappy No forward or reverse

Got SD20 saildrives, engine revs but no forward or reverse motion when in gear. Also throttle feels a little light on that engine. Any suggestions appreciated!

Is the prop still attached?

Re: No forward or reverse

Have you tried manually putting it into gear at the actual saildrive? If it goes into gear there then its a Throttle/cable or prop issue if it does not then its a saildrive issue.

Answer came from a very competent mechanic at JAS MARINE in w. Palm beach.
The pin INSIDE the transmission had come out. He fixed it within an hour. A one on a thousand problem, but fixed!!!!
