My newly rebuilt YSM-8 runs well, in neutral, but as soon as it is put in gear it bogs down to the point of stalling, despite opening the throttle to full. In neutral the revs spool up and down in synch with throttle adjustments, the motor seems to run fine until put in either reverse or forward. The shaft is free and turns easily by hand. Any suggestions?

I am by no means an expert, but i am intersted.

Can you feel the gears engage? When the motor is not running, if you put it into gear, does the shaft lock up?
