    Bravo one locked up ? Help please-gctid405754

    I did a search and did not find any subjects pertaining to this so I guess that means it doesn't happen very often? My lower unit seams to be locked in gear or between gears not sure which but I cant put the shifter into reverse with the cables attached to the shift assembly at the motor but if I disconnect the cables I can move the shifter handle to reverse so its got to be in the lower unit? If so what do you recommend ? if not what do you recommend? Thanks for any input!

    The Bravo drives do not like to be shifted when the engine is not running.

      The BI drive is a cone clutch drive. FWD/REV gear engagement/disengagement is achieved in the upper unit. The two lower unit gears are continuously in contact with one another (no disengagement).

      Can you elaborate on just what's happening or not happening?

          Drain the gear oil look for pieces. The shift cable might have corrosion. 2 reasons right there. Gears went or the cable went. Ether way the drive got to come off.
