Re: 2-blade Flexofold Problems

My problem was, it was not unfolding in forward gear. Keld (who has been very patient with me over many months) advised that the cone clutch on my SD50 saildrive was slipping and needed lapping. I took the advise of a normally knowledgeable (and always correct) friend who said the clutch was not slipping. After many months of to and fro I personally lapped the clutch (quite a job for a dunce) and guess what? The Flexofold 2 blader works perfectly again.
PS Had I followed the maintenance schedule from Yanmar, the lapping would have already been done!

Question Re: 2-blade Flexofold Problems

Hi Guys
I'm a few years late but same problem
FOF blades had been working fine,
then replaced seals and anodes, cleaned blades all
out of the water, and now there is no reverse. Forward OK
Blades open at idle revs then fold as revs increase.
Did anyone come across the cause ??
