Re: Hurth engagement question

I change the fluid in my tranny every year or about 100 hours. I'm about to change it again as part of my winter maintenance, but don't suspect that is my issue.

I can't really deal with the tranny until she is hauled out, easily, and once she is out the clock is racing and the money spending. It's just not a time when I can bring the tranny home and spend 2 week carefully taking it apart and then to a machine shop and all that. Even though that is a logical and good thing to do.

As a practical matter, when I have the boat hauled, I can pull the tranny and replace the damper plate and put it back together and then back in the water but if that doesn't fix it...

I guess it may be possible to pull my tranny while Aeolus is in the water, I haven't thought about it much. I have and love a PSS shaft seal, so I suppose I would only need to push that back enough to free up the tranny...
