I just replaced the shaft for my tilt motor on my 78 OMC motor.  To do this I had to take the gears out of the gear box to push the old shaft out.  When I put it all back together my gears don't seem to catch.  When I hit the toggle on my tilt the large outer gear turns but the small gears inside of the large gear doesn't.  Those gears have to move in order to move my outdrive up and down.  Any suggestions??

Hello the  gears have to move together. I would check th clutch plate assy to make sure the snap ring is in place holding the clutches tight together.
