I have a 140hp 4 stroke on a 20 ft deck boat.  The boat ran fine last night, tried to get it in reverse, would not go, and then would not go into forward.  Any one know what may of caused this? thanks

Hello  1st check for cable movement in motor when shifting. If no movement when shifting remove cable from mounting and retest. If throttle cable is set too tight control will not shift and have no resistance when shifting.
