Re: Hurth engagement question

Hey Faster, thanks, and hope you are doing well up there. Saw Smith Island has been having 50 knot winds and that the northern Salish Sea has been getting its usual winter punishment. Love it.

Your suggestion sort of hits a nail on the head, which is whether my trouble is fixable by me, and worth the trouble and time, or whether it's time for a new one. New they are about $1,200 and rebuilt is not much less. I'm quite capable for a home mechanic, but don't have lots of extra time, especially when the tranny is pulled.

I'm hoping some more people might have particular expertise with Hurth being fully engaged easily but not sticking in gear until revved up a bit. More ideas welcomed.
