Re: Universal 5411....Hurth Transmission...propeller rotation
It's possible to connect the shift linkage in such a way as to 'reverse' the gear.. if someone did this and you were always technically in reverse when going forward that might explain the lack of boatspeed. (IIRC the gear ratios are different fwd vs rev)
EDIT.. from your pic it doesn't look like the shift linkage connection is reversed, so not sure what to think....
