By forcing the gear select down I'd doubt you'd have damaged it, if you can see the image on the link it just turns a cam (4) that moves the clutch rod (5) forward and back -

80 EFI (4-STROKE) Mariner Outboard 1B227000 THRU 1B366822 Gear Housing(Prop Shaft)(2.33:1 Gear Ratio) Diagram and Parts

The gear shift does't rotate very much, try turning it and see where it engages and if it engages slightly in both directions - were there any issues before when you last uses it?

None. It was only after about 30hrs use since new but hard been sitting idle for about two years, hence the full service. If the prop is to turn one way when in forward I think it is ok but the oil is confusing. I will hook uk the muffs to it, check the oil level and see where we are at over the next few days. If I had spilt oil when filling does it drain out through the leg?

I'm wondering if you could have pushed the shift rod down and dislodged the circlip that sits two thirds the way up, easy to check, either pull the rod up and it will click back or whip the pump off and take the rod out.

Ok. Rather than stick my head in the sand I think I have found where the stupidity occured and said I better come clean. I decided I would check the engine again and start it to make sure it was just oil spilled somehow within the engines upper compartment. Anyway I connected up the hose and ran the engine for about five seconds. Result: Oil everywhere especially by the oil filter and dip stick. I decided I had damaged the engine case somehow so took off the oil filter quickly for a look. As I did the gasket was loose from the filter.... or so I thought. Long and the short of it is the old gasket had stuck on to the engine and i never spotted it when installing the new filter and the two gaskets were obviously removing the seal rather than creating one.

Idiot me I think!

Something so simple but I think it wont happen to me again. Cant believe I missed it the first time. Changed plenty of oil filters in my time.

Anyway thanks for all your help guys. I said I would be honest and close the story!
