Look for a soft plug on the power head with a number on it someone here can date it from there.
If it has a sleek one piece gearcase it is electric shift.And some models remain in forward gear when de energized.The gearcase is difficult to work on and should not be attempted without a manual.It is fairly simple to trouble shoot with a manual.Most after market manuals cover 10 or 12 years but you'll need to know what year you have because because there are 2 distinct electric shifts.
