65 hp mercury slips in reverse but not forward

by Mike
(Indianapolis,)

I have a 65 Merc that we installed two years ago. For the first couple of times the engine ran fine but the last dozen or so times when I shift to reverse I have to do it very slowly at low rpm's to get reverse to engage and only then it will only run at very low rpm's. I have to let the engine idle way down from forward before shifting or it will grind and not engage in reverse. ANY help would be most appreciated. I am at wits end on this. Thanks in advance for taking the time to read this.
