i have just changed over my hub ( it was cracked ) and prop on the boat and have unfortunately ended up with the opposite direction new prop ( right vs left handed )
Does it matter ?? can i just reverse the throttle controls ???
I have spoken to 2 different Volvo
mechanics - 1 said it was bad but mainly because the clutch
will be bedded in one direction and i might have probs with this .... the other said ... that might happen but the reverse gear
will be almost brand new ( a glass half full kind of guy ) .... and that when he fits 2 sail drives to boats he puts opposite direction props on them anyway ....
Neither seemed to say it was an absolute problem but the old salts around the club are saying they think it is unlikely that the gear
ratio is the same in both directions and the reverse gear would not be manufactured to do lots of work etc ....
I need help from a Cruising Forum expert
