    Check your reverse bucket, is it going into the full down position?

    Have you checked to make sure the reverse gate is dropping all the way when you pull the lever? Also, have you added a pump wedge by chance?

    Linkage issues?? Check the linkage from the reverse handle to the bucket, is it bound at all? Is there anything in it's way?

    My issue has always been a broken/cracked reverse gate..
    That being said, I am also reigning champion of submarines
    at my lake.
    It would only take a small crack for it to NOT work becasue
    of the force applied to it thru the jet pump.

    Sounds like you may have lost the reverse gate return spring. Just a thought

    The bucket still works fine without the spring in my experience.

    +1 it works fine without the spring. I think you need to take a close look at were the cable connects to the handle and to the bucket, I would say something is broke or out of place, probably letting the cable float around.

    + 1 , yeah theres really not much to it, just take a look at it from the handle and follow the cable all the way to the back. check the spring , or even cracks in the basket..
