Reverse only partially engaging

Reverse is only partially engaging in our Kanzaki KM4A (transmission for Yanmar 4JH3E). When engaging reverse the shaft starts to spin in reverse but doesn't spin any faster as more throttle is applied. The problem is reproducible with the control cables disconnected. And sometimes it works just fine (but most of the time it does not). No problems in forward. Any suggestions on what this might be or how to troubleshoot this further or even fix it?
