Question for anyone that services their own outboard. I swapped out my impeller on my 60 hp 4 stroke. After putting it back together I cannot get it to change gears. I did not have this issue the last time I changed it. I have tried a couple different combinations. I finally got it in neutral and the motor started fine but still won’t change out neutral. Any advice on what I might try.

It's in your linkage. The shift rod that runs up the mid section. You probably need to pull the lower back off and turn it 180 degrees one way or the other. You tube It. Common mistake.

Nope took it apart numerous times same result. I can tell something is in a bind but doesn’t seem to matter which way I turn it still doesn’t go in correctly.

When lower unit is off, make sure it is in forward, position your shifter in forward also...when installing make sure linkage stays aligned as such...hope it works out for u...

I’m sure I’ll get it figured out just frustrating knowing it’s probably something simple. 20 minute job turned into 2 days.

Will it go in and out of gear when it’s off the motor?

Yes. Everything works like it should when it’s disassembled.

Quick update I actually bent the gear shaft on the lower unit. Thanks to Travis I got it repaired today.
