I have a Mercury XR4 150 that goes into reverse just fine but the only way I can get it into forward is to rev the engine up, with hot-foot, and slam it in forward. If the motor is at idle and I try forward, it just grinds. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Had that happen to my Evinrude and it was something in the lower unit. Need a good repair guy. I would talk to Fish-N-Fun

sounds like a busted clutch dog in the lower unit.

See if you can adjust forward cable all the way. If it still does it then it's the clutch dog bout a five hundred dollar repair.

I planning on trying that this weekend and hoping it works. But, if not, I guess you gotta pay to play right? Lol. Thank you

A boat is a hole in the water surrounded by wood, fiberglass or metal into which one pours money - old quote
