Well, sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't. Which makes docking
interesting. I've experienced no reverse, and then moments later reverse would engage
I wondered if this might happen more when the engine
(transmission, really) is hot, so today on our return to the dock
(and I have a particularly difficult-to-access berth) I made sure to not run this port engine
(on a cat) until I arrived. Shifted fine, but who knows next time.
Having heard of eventual problems with the cone clutch
in the SD20, perhaps this is how it starts? I had checked to make sure that the shift linkage was working properly externally, and everything looked fine, while I was watching anyway. So it seems the problem is inside the transmission
Has anyone else had a problem of this nature? Or a problem with the cone clutch
, and if so what were the symptons?
