Re: Hurth Transmission not Engaging

Re: Hurth Transmission not Engaging

Yeah, I'll keep filling in info as I get it. It was frustrating, but at least we were able to get the starter working, and the engine started. That's a good start (pun intended)!

Re: Hurth Transmission not Engaging

I spoke with Ferry Point Marina, and they (understanably) can't fit me in today, so it will have to be some time next week. The service manager there, Mark, said that the only way for the damping plate to break is for there to have been a "catestrophic failure", which would have been caused either by the transmission seizing (which I think is a possibility since it was dry when I got aboard, but not as likely given that we can still feel it moving in and out of gear) or by the prop snagging on something. He didn't think the disc would just deteriorate due to age; I'm not so sure I agree with that.

Anyway, they will be troubleshooting the problem next week.

Interestingly, he mentioned that if the prop was fouled on something, that insurance may pick up the cost of the repair, minus any deductable (of course). That's not usually how my luck runs, though...

Re: Hurth Transmission not Engaging

I think flex plates fail often and rattle allot! I've seen what they look like coming out. Shudder....Then.. where do people buy them?
Looking at the book (thanks! Por-Fin) I think a friend and I could rebuild mine if necessary. "someday"

Re: Hurth Transmission not Engaging

Denise, here are the sources I've found so far for the damper:
Sailboat Supplies, Engine Parts and Boat Parts
Universal, Damper, 299156
Universal 299156 Sailboat Supplies, Engine Parts and Boat Parts
299156 DAMPER - Engines1
Westerbeke - 299156, Electrical, Generators - Parts, Generator Parts, Westerbeke-Damper #299156 - FirstChoiceMarine.com
Discount Marine Source - Westerbeke, Damper, 299156
DAMPER (WESTERBEKE P/N 299156) (#UJHW299156) - Performance Product Technologies


There's also an interesting discussion here:
SailboatOwners.com - Anyone Tried These Motor Mounts
Apparently most of the dampers were made by Sachs, but Universal actually tried a few others as well. As a result, you have to be careful...

Re: Hurth Transmission not Engaging

Jim,

Just to raise the suggestion again --

Don't buy a new damper plate until you know your tranny is salvageable. If you wind up having to buy a new gearbox, then there's no guarantee that your brand new, freshly purchased damper plate will fit the new unit.

I've got my fingers crossed for you on this one.

Re: Hurth Transmission not Engaging

Thanks for the reminder! I'm just researching and trying to document my research a bit. I agree, buying anything at this point would be premature. The marina will be troubleshooting some time next week, then we'll figure out what to do.
