  1. Cascade 29 transmission/throttle

    [FONT="Arial"]Owner of Cascade 29. It carries a Volvo Penta MD2B. Old (original?) morris control. The transmission seems okay. Doesn't stick, stays in one place. But the the throttle creeps back and would power down until the engine shuts off unless you are able to push it forward where...
  2. M3-20B Universal has a broken ZF 5 m (Hurth) Transmission

  3. Prop Dilemma

    General Discussion (sailing related)
    I have an Islander Freeport 38, also known as an Islander 38C. The original engine was a 42hp Pathfinder 50. Not sure what transmission it had or the gear ratio. The prop was a Sailor 2 blade 17 RH 8. I repowered it with Yanmar 4JH2-TE rated at 63hp at 3600rpm with a KBW 20 transmission...

  5. Engine trouble

    General Discussion (sailing related)
    So I went out for a sail today up to Lost Isle and caught a great sunset. The San Joaquin Delta has some of the best sunsets in my opinion. The wind died so I decided to fire up the iron jib and motor back. As I approached my Harbor entrance I slowed down and heard an awful rattling sound coming...
  6. Yanmar 2gmf stuck in reverse gear

    Hi all -- I recently acquired a 1983 Pearson 303, which I'm liking very much. It has a Yanmar 2GMF 13 hp 2-cylinder diesel, which runs like a champ. This evening, however, I discovered, to my distress, that the transmission appears to be stuck in reverse, which created some difficulty in getting...

    Gear & Maintenance
    Hello, I recently had the output coupling from my Yanmar 2QM15 transmission fall out while underway (we didn't hit anything), disconnecting the prop shaft as a result. I'm in the process of undergoing repair, but I'm concerned that I may only be addressing the symptoms without isolating the...
