OMC question

I have a OMC cobra outdrive on my boat powered by a chevy 350, The drive will not go in to forward, but it will go in to reverse -- I have taken the cable that goes to the drive off the linkage and even tried to do it manually, but same thing... I just get reverse Does anyone have experience with this kind of drive ( 1989 ) or had the same problem? Is there any kind of adjustment that I can try on the drive itself? any help well be appreciated ---- from another fourm some guy said that it might be a cable that was stretched...... anyone ever had this problem?

Thanks Alan

Did you try manually down on the outdrive itself with the shift lever? If it still does not go into forward, I'd say you probably broke a shift dog. It a tab of metal down on the shift lever that allows the forward/reverse gears to engage. Pretty common problem, and not terrible expensive to repair.
