My guess is that you are getting water in the connection of the angle sensor on the front of the motor. Unplug the sensor, blow it out, and fill it with di-electric grease.

That will probably help your issues you are having.

Did you try adjusting the clutch? Loosen lock nut, turn adjuster counterclockwise until you feel slight pressure, back off .25 turns and tighten lock nut. I was having problems similiar to yours, clutch was just out of adjustment.

Keep us posted........
