We have a Yanmar
3HM35F with a Kanzaki
. It has been slipping out of forward gear
and sometimes does not engage in forward gear
. We replaced the shifter thinking this was the problem. Only getting worse. Most of the time will run all day long at 1800 to 2000 rpms but recently when we tried to increase to 2200 rpms it slipped out of gear. Many times to get forward to engage, a quick shift into reverse will remedy the problem. It is a 1989 tranny and we use dexron III like the manual recommends - as did the PO. Is it linkage or in the tranny? If tranny needs pulled, it looks like we have to raise the entire engine
to get it off ( in an Island Packet
35). Any help is appreciated.
