Unhappy Volvo penta md17c reverse gear msb

Good morning,
I have a volvo MD17c with an MSB reverse gear. The gear has stopped engaging in forward. The gear has been removed and the shop is telling me the cone shaped liner in the gear has gone bad and is no longer available. Ultimately this is starting to look extremely expensive as the gear cannot be rebuilt. Has anyone run into this with good result? What did you find and do to for a solution. Any help would be so appreciated.

Sound Marine Diesel in CT had a few used MS transmissions in their inventory when I was last there. This may be your best bet. Their phone # is 860 666 2184.

Good luck, Stanley

I have a used ms gear from 1978 that works great and most of the rest of the motor if you are in need of any other "green Dream" parts. If you are interested, PM me.

The gear can be rebuilt. Take it to a good brake shop and they can glue a lining in and machine to suit. I have had it done years ago.
Regards,
Richard.

Hi Richard,
Thank you for explaining how to reline the cones on an MSB. Two questions:
1. Did you reline both the male cone surfaces AND the forward & reverse female cones?
2. How thick was the applied lining?
I'm going to do this and will report later! Thanks again.

Larry,
Shoot me a PM with your e mail and I will send you a VP drawing of the gear with friction lining installed. This gives basic dimensions and angles for the lining material and will be helpful for your relining company.

Hi Larry,

The male cone was never lined.
I don't know the thickness, but Volvo should be able to advise.
The company that did this for me was Fenquin. <fenquin.com.au> but remember this was around 20 yrs ago. Would still be worth asking them though.
Hope this helps.

Regards,
Richard.

Hey Doug,
I sure appreciate your offer to send drawings. No rush, but I want to make sure you got my PM messages elsewhere on this site. In case you didn't, here's my email address:

And thank you!
Larry
