No, the most likely thing is the spur gear is too loose or stripped. The other things are possible but less likely than a spur gear / slipper issue.

i have had my shifting fork stretch to a point where it hoped over the spool and would not engage forward or reverse. I would look at that if the spur is not stripped and the CB shaft is not loose. Hows the clutch shoes?

Also sounds like it could just be the slipper nut not being tight enough on the spur gear. Should be tightened all the way until it stops then backed of 1/8 turn.
