If you are trying to shift it while not running the "shift dog" may not be lined up with the gear, turn the prop a little should go in to gear. If the engine is running and will not shift then the idle could be set to high. On the control box there is often a small thumb screw that lifts the idle a little this may have been turned which will lock the **** mechanism for engaging gears, back off the idle screw. If you have replaced the shift or throttle cables these need to be readjusted before proper operation can continue.

Cant find year of my outbaord its a 50 hp mercury number A102-766

Does this help?
Locate the serial number plate by looking on your motor's transom bracket; the plate will have "Mercury Marine" written on the top. The serial number is the top number on the plate. The number directly beneath this is the year it was manufactured.

From everything I can find, yours is a 1986 model
