I bought a late 60's starcraft with a 33 hp johnson motor. I took it out shortly after I bought it and while under full power it banged hard and lost forward movement. (I thought I had lost the forward gear) I took it to a guy to take a look at it and he said the linkage was loose inside the housing and under full power it would slip out causing it to jump out of gear. He adjusted it and said it was good to go. I took it out yesturday and occasionally it would bang and ack like it was jumping out of gear momentarily. Does any one have any suggestions for me??
