I put a used lower unit on my 1993 evinrude 150. Forward work great but when I shift into reverse it just makes a clatter sound and never gets in gear. Maybe someone can help me out. I am thinking my shift rod needs adjusting

Happens a lot a guy tightens the shift rod while out. Tighten shift shaft all down then back out 7 turns.

Forward locks in with no play. Reverse has about a half turn of play. Adjustment made can't seem to get it right in reverse with a load on it.

You should have 1/8 to 1/4 round play but lock in both gears. The shift dog ratchets and only locks one direction. Did you adjust the shift shaft? If you don`t the shift into reverse can not be adjusted enough.
