    Default Volvo Penta outdrive not locking in reverse?

    My volvo penta 280 outdrive is not locking in reverse now, it was working when I left the dock, I looked at when I pulled the boat out of the water and everything looks fine. It locks down when its on the trailer, any ideas would help. Thanks

    If its anything like the old style 290 duoprop lock downs check the springs and funcky thin metal bracket on the lockdown , the metal bracket lines up the locking dogs and if that is hanging up or not well greased it will cause the drive to not lock down.
