Here is an interesting problem.
I recently had my paragon transmission
rebuilt and put it back in the boat.
The unit ran great for about 10 hours. ( Ran at the dock
at between 2000
and 2500 hours periodically for and one to two hours a week before taking the boat out) The day before I took the boat out I ran the engine
30 minutes and went below to check it. The engine
were working fine, but the prop shaft was not turning. I shut the engine down
and checked the prop shaft flange and transmission flanges. What I found was that three of the bolts were broken and one was stripped. all of them went into the bilge
I then started the engine and it and the transmission ran fine and there no oil leaks
I have talked to 3 mechanics including the one who rebuilt the transmission. and all have said that they have never seen anything like it.
and were amazed that there appears to be no damage to the transmission or engine. All have stated that they could not tell me a cause.
I have to leave the boat but I am going to pull the transmission next month and have made arangements to have the repair facility check the
transmission. This is a Paragon p25L Transmission
Any Ideas or help will be appreciated
