I had it happen with a Paragon transmission while docking. An "E" clip had broken, and allowed a shaft to move. A 10 cent part, but had to remove and take the transmission apart to find the culprit. Frustrating.

Thanks for all the replys. Went to check the linkage and the shaft was not connected to the transmission! Made a funny sound whe turned. I am a diver, looked at the prop and shaft it was wedged againts the rudder. Pushed it foewarsd and now turns fine with no play. Waiting in a new coupler

So the transmission did go into gear, it just wasn't connected to the propeller.
