    anybody here any good with working on them?went out yesterday and got allmost to our spot and motor lost all drive.figured it had something to do with the pin on the prop since i had just replaced it but it all checked out good.when you put it in forward its like its not engaging all the way and is slipping.reverse works perfect so if you have any clues let me know.
