Re: Hurth Transmission not Engaging
Thank you! When I was looking at the parts diagrams for both the engine and the transmission, I did not see a part that looked like the one that fell out of the Starter when we pulled the starter out of the engine. It turns out that those almost exactly match the springs that are part of the damper plate. That makes me feel a lot better about the way the engine died. No reference that I have found, after searching for some time, showed pictures of the damper plate. Now that I knew what to look for, I was able to do a search and find what a damper plate looks like and I'm almost entirely convinced that that's the correct part. Or, more correctly, the part that died.
Of course, that does not rule out a transmission problem, but at least this is an easier, or at least less expensive, fix.
