I have a BW 71C Velvet Drive transmission
in my Pearson
. At 25 years old I started researching the cost to repower
. I spoke to Beta Marine
, who sells engine
packages but the salesman recommended keeping the transmission even if I got a new engine
. Said the Velvet Drive was as good as it gets and worth rebuilding if I had a problem with it.
I think I have a manual in a pdf file. Let me know if you're interested and I'll see if I can dig it up.
