Bravo One drive stuck in reverse.

So just checking everything with engine running and it appears that the Bravo one drive is stuck in reverse. It seamed fine when I pulled it out of the water last week. The cable feels OK and the lever seems to operate as it should but stuck in reverse. It has always been very stiff selecting gears. Any one got any ideas?

Has the cable end slipped out of the claws where the drive bolts on? Might be worth undoing the 6 bolts and having a look?

He's right...and those claws wear and fail to grip the cable.

Don't forget to reset the cable dimension.
