BW6 gearbox, Bukh DV20, stuck in fwd
Hi, my gearbox is stuck in fwd. I know it’s not the cable, the selector at the gearbox is definitely stuck. Discovered next to no gearboxoil, put in new oil - 0.4 litres as per manual, but not even showing up on dipstick, so about to add more till it shows up/come out overflow - whichever comes first! From some forum surfing I suspect the The cone is stuck to the fwd gear due lack of oil... my questions?
1. Where will the oil I’ve added have gone?
2. How likely is it I’ll get lucky and free it or will I do damage if I bang it with a ‘persuader’ ie hammer ?
3. If I’m really up the **** does anyone know how much distance I’d need to slide the gearbox away from the engine to remove it?
