I think I broke my transmission? (1994 Hunter 29.5)
So its been a few weeks, the boat is still floating, looks 100% better too after a few days just cleaning it.
However, as we are motoring back into the harbor this past weekend, and slowly pulled up to the mooring buoy to end the day - it occurred to me that reverse is no longer working the boat. In fact, when throttling into reverse, the boat travels faster forward.
I have searched high and low for an answer on the forums, but haven't found anything... Which is somewhat disheartening because it means I have done something that moast have not. I am not completely incompetent around mechanical systems, however - I haven't the slightest idea about how to fix this.
Also - can someone explain how the shifting should work, because if I am doing something wrong, I would like to know... I have been figuring out this boat as I am on it, no manuals, no previous owner, etc... I got the prop engage/disengage figured out (day 1). And I understand not to shift between forward and reverse without throttling back comepletely - maybe its the use of the lever on the throttle arm? I have been pulling that up - but honestly do not know what it is.
Anyone got a manual for this boat that can be emailed BTW?
Thanks for any help, and also not hammering on me too much...
