Just got the motor. Runs fine except when I get under way, I go about 1/4 mile out. Engine seems to kick into neutral. Won't go back into any gear until I raise the motor and rotate the prop by hand. It will then go back into gear. But a little later, it goes out of gear. Cables and all are ok, marked and checked them each time. They are where they should be. Checked the prop, it isn't slipping. Is their a bushing in the lower unit that may have worn out that would allow such a slippage.
