When we rebuilt OZ, we added a screwed on plate to the Morse shifter with a hole in it for each position that gave us the detents. Google Morse shifter detent plates.

I recommend taking off the shifter controls cover and seeing if something has come loose, broken or in general gone arie.

Also check the cable end hook up at transmission. Sounds as though in one or both those locations something is loose.

Between those locations all there is is bendable but rigid cable.

Another thought is the cable itself in some relatively sharp bend area that has a "keeper" that held it firmly in position. The cable itself may be flexing too much while it relays shifter to trany torque.

Good luck!

It is my belief that it is. - and thus the reason it is an option for boats shipped to Canada as a new boat for sale as our boat was. It is my understanding that this requirement is not necessary in the USA
