Lower unit will not go into neutral or reverse. I have bought and replaced the two selenoids in the lower unit. What else could be wrong??????

The most common problem is lack of pump pressure. And putting the wrong fluid in the unit.
Did you happen to notice the condition of the pump in the nose of the gearcase.
The drive pin on it may be sheared too.
Are you getting full travel from the cables?
Thats a pretty tricky housing to work on.
But a good unit, get back to us on what you found.. thanks Scott
