Re: Repower confusion (horsepower)
It was direct reverse (no transmission, just a driveline) so you shut the engine down and pulled a lever and started the engine again (compressed air start) running in the opposite direction.
That would add a whole new level of interest to docking maneuvers.
"O/K dear - get the engine running in the other direction - QUICK"
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
