Sorry I can`t help with the year but I did some reading and I believe the 40 hp motor was available with the electromatic gearcase that should be in neutral when de energized.And this unit was available at least 62-70 my manual stops at 70.As stated before if it has a sleek one piece gearcase it is electromatic shift.It will also have a generator.
Regular shift motors have a stubby 2 piece gearcase with a removeable bottom.
And may or may not have a generator.
I hope I haven`t totally confused you.
If it is manual shift it will have a lever on the side of the motor Does it seem stuck or moves but doesn`t shift?
