hey guys that little 9.5 Johnson (9R-69S) I have has been running great until this morning when I was  pulling up to a bank I was trying to slow down so I put the boat in reverse and the gears just wouldn't  engage. there was no weird noises that would suggest gears stripping or a shaft breaking so am not sure what is wrong didn't have much time to look at it this morning as it was getting close to time to get to work by the time my trolling motor had me pulled back to the dock. any thoughts on what this could be I am planning on heading to hot springs tonight to go fishing on lake quchita with a friend but got to have the boat running first. please any help is appreciated

Does that little motor have a shear pin?

Put throttle in gear - see if you can turn the prop with it in gear - (you shouldn't be able to) if it turns - three possibilities (shear pin if it has one,) spun prop hub (rubber grommet inside prop), OR clutch dog on F/N/R inside the lower unit is bad --

Good deal.  Could have been worse, I know.
