3rd time out on my "new" old 1988 25' Ragazza, as I throttled up seems like my forward motion,"torque" slips, I have an understanding of outdrives, clutch, etc. How hard is it to adjust the clutch? seems like that is the problem....(Alpha1 gen) Thanks in advance.

How much uuummmph to turn the prop...If it will turn, and do I look at the shaft behind the engine??

Remove the prop, look at the back side for signs of rubber. you won't see much just black in the groove between the prop and its hub. It is more common for the prop's hub to slip than the coupler, usually you can smell the rubber burning when a coupler fries.


Added note note I just read your post "Scots Donzi", Can you be a little more specific? There is a difference between slipping and jumping in and out of gear. Like fix said it also could be the clutch dog failing, you may hear the ratcheting or also feel it come into gear kind of hard. Hub slip is more of a soft engagement.
