Sorry about the slow reply -- I was on vacation
. Not sailing, but still, not at work! Anyway, I had some success with my MSB over the winter. I pulled the drain out of the bottom and allowed a thorough drain of all liquids. I then put in clean oil
. With regard to my leaking, I was able to discern that my problem was the plug
on the back of the output shaft. I could barely separate the drive coupling, but I was able to fabricate a custom chain wrench (not enough room for a standard chain wrench) and tighten it down. With too many projects and not enough time, I've only been able to put about 4 hours on the engine
this year, but so far I have no leaking oil
and no milky oil. Life looks GOOD!
With regard to your questions, I haven't needed to remove the tranny yet, so I have no idea what is in there.
I did see, reading on through the messages, that you have a manual for the tranny! Is there any chance you could scan it and share it? They are scarce as hen's teeth.
