    The lock is not really a manual lock, it's a reverse lock to keep the drive from coming up out of the water when you put it in reverse.
    Putting the shifter into forward gear will release the lockdown mechanism.

      Thanks Don, that's how I understood it, and how the PO explained it, except he told me he had manually locked it so that they are locked even in forward. He "demonstrated" on the spare leg, and it seemed he just flicked something up and down. Maybe he was spinning a yarn to cover up for a defect? Can it be manually released if it doesn’t unlock in forward?
