Re: E-TEC 225 "acts" like it comes out of gear.

 

 

The clutch dog is also called a shifter in some parts catalogs and service manuals. The following videos may help in understanding how the shifting system works in an outboard motor gearcase

If the motor is jumping out of gear, the engine lurches suddenly, often with a "bang" and it tilts upwards slightly for a fraction of a second, similar to hitting a small submerged object.

 

Most often this is due to a worn forward gear and clutch dog from shifting too slow, shift rod height adjustment and shift cable adjustment being incorrect, or bent, worn, or sloppy shifting linkage and control box.

 

See a dealer for inspection of your engine. It the wear is not too bad, getting the adjustments corrected often takes care of the problem. If too far gone, then gearcase servicing is needed.
