"An electrical cord accidentally got wrapped up on my prop for a 1953 95hp K engine for my Chris Craft Sportsman. WHile the engine still runs perfectly, it will not engage in forward or reverse. Is there a safty mechanism of some sort that prevents the engine from causing serious damage when the propeller freezes up from something like this or am I looking at some serious damage to my engine or transmission?

I think you know the answer. Sorry.

Check the prop on the shaft.
Does the shaft not turn?
Also those tranny's are the worlds simplest gear box. getting it out of the boat is the hardest part of the rebuild.
