forward gear jumping

Hi all
i have a mariner 40 hp 6e9 model just bought and have just found that the forward gear jumps when engaged i am looking to get the dog and gear machined and was just wounding could the gears be switched around so the reverse has the machined gear instead of the forward as it is not used that much any ideas or comments would be great many thanks

There is a shaft going across engine under carb. On the end of that shaft there is a spline where it connects to the vertical gear rod. I guess there is movement at that splined joint
