I'm a first time boat owner. It's a 1965 boat with a 1965 johnson 40hp motor (model# RDS-27M) The engine starts right up, but grinds real bad in fwd. reverse is ok. does it pay to get a new lower unit?
if so where can i get one, and about how much will it cost? I live in sound beach.
Also someone said it could be the clutch-dog and fwd. gear.would this be easier and cheaper to replace? could I do it myself, I'm mechanically inclined.

thanks in advance
