This is not an unusual problem and the clutch fingers are easily adjusted, but you must follow the directions to get the adjustment exactly right. The job itself is not at all difficult. You must first remove the top cover of the gearbox, which is held in place with four bolts. This exposes the entire gearbox. Then you must slowly rotate the transmission until the adjustment bolt comes into view. The bolt has a screw-head slot in the top of it as well. Then it's just a matter of removing the bolt, turning the gear in the proper direction to align the indents, then reinserting the locking bolt. This is a simplified list of instructions, but you can download the full instructions from Moyer Marine's site.
