  1. Stuffing Box Difficulties

    Gear & Maintenance
    Hi all, Thanks for reading this. I have C&C33 with Atomic 4 and V-drive. The stuffing box is directly below the V-drive and almost impossible to tighten. I have made tools, bought 6 different sized pipe-wrenches and even tried a set of crowsfoot wrenches and I still can't tighten the lock nut...
  2. Columbia 43 v drive

    My v drive wont engage either forward or reverse. The shaft spins when it is in neutral but as soon as I put my hand on it it stops turning. The shifter works and I can hear a clicking sound when shifting it into forward and reverse but no movement. Can anyone give me some advice?
