can you take tranny out and check it over before taking whole engine out?

if it not prop, shaft, cutlass bearing or stuffing box issues then go to tranny...might be one of the bearings being seized

the exra help with throttle could be something as simple as the extra load created by this and you needing to give more throttle

start with the simple stuff...

did the shop put in the correct tranny oil?

clanking sound in the tranny is a dead giveaway, start there.

some yanmars need specific tranny oil and not using the correct type will cause slippage, vibration etc...

just a thought

That's my very next step on Monday. I'll let you know how it goes. Tho the engine runs fine [ in neutral ], up to 3600 RPM. Under load, all heck breaks loose. Gotta be something in fuel system causing it to knock. All fuel filters clean, but maybe not injector pump , lines or injectors.

Thanks, Dave
is it knocking engine side or tranny side...you said tranny side so why would you go looking at injectors first?

you also say it runs fine up to 3600rpm unloaded(which is a bad thing to do btw)...

be carefull

I vote tranny

good luck

Singapore dealer visually inspected tranny, said damage unlikely.

Shifter checked, all fine.

Vibration damper is a spring loaded plate which absorbs shock from tranny shifting. Cost $350. No joy

Fixed 3 blade Michigan wheel is fine, likewise shaft.

Problem appears to be injector pump, injectors, and tranny. Tho no problems when revving in neutral or full throttle in reverse. Also no problem when cold engine or above 2000RPM.

Most worrisome is incredible shaking and clacking noise at 1200 to 1900 RPM in forward gear
does it do it in reverse?

the shaft inside the bearing or the bearing within the skeg?

should have NO PLAY either way...

if the actual bearing has play inside the skeg that means it is not properly bedded, is the set screw still there?

the same applies to a cutlass bearing bedded inside a stern gland in glass...

btw running an engine with a loose cutlass bearing or NO bearing at all especially if unaligned will make a horrible racket!

I bought a boat with a bad bearing and later replaced it...basically using the engine even for emergency just made too much noise and damage

this might be your issue all along

remeber go from simple to complicated thats why start from the prop all the way to the engine...

AWESOME! have a beer and get that tranny rebuilt!

can you try to have one made in the meantime? Ive had to do a lot of machining simple stuff for my motorcycle down here

making one in bronze or stainless for the meantime while you wait for the original might be of help to you
