Ok, my Yanmar 3gm30
has taken on a new behavior. After the anchor
goes down and I reverse to set it, the engine
bogs/stalls as soon as itís in reverse. I can keep it from stalling if I rev it up a bit. I shift with the rpms around 1000. The interesting thing is that it only happens the first time... I can go back to neutral and the next time to reverse it shift normally. I can even go back to forward gear
then back to reverse and it works fine (I tried this because I have maxi
prop and thought the effort to reverse the prop blades was causing more friction, but nope, only problematic the first time in reverse.
This happens regardless of boat
speed or forward momentum and it only happens the first time, and never for forward gear
. I have check the prop and shaft for anything fouling either but itís all clear. I have the km3 transmission
. Any ideas or thoughts or test would be appreciated.
From what I read on the internet
it could be the stop cable not all the way in or gear linkage or the idle/governor. The stop cable is easy to check but not sure what/how to test the others. None of these really seem to explain it only happening in reverse.
