  10. Re: Merc 90 hp forward reverse stiff when running

    Re: Dog clutch spring

    You can see the reverse dogs in this cutaway25727if you look really closely.
    I'm assuming that they used square dogs because in R the prop will move outwards and the ramp type would ratchet.

    Re: Dog clutch spring

    The gear oil will make the prop spin in neutral it doesn't mean it's in gear. If you are shifting into R with the motor not running you can do a lot of damage to the shift shaft as another poster...
