    A model number would help immensely.

    Does this happen when shifting both into forward and reverse, or just one gear? You need to give us specifics to be able to help you out.

    The model number is E200 TXECM when I put it on reverse I feel is hard to shift but get the gear and when I try it foward is when the RPM rise but don't shift I did it @ the house whit the hose and heard like a grinding noise coming from the lower unit when triying to engage but once in gear the noise go away

    Best to have a trained tech check it out. It could be such things as incorrect shift rod height, worn control box or cable (too much free play), broken weld on horizontal shift shaft and lever, worn clutch dog or internal gearcase linkage, etc.
