I have a Hurth
V-Drive powered by a Perkins
4-108 from 1983. Last spring I lost
while underway in Mexico
. I had a mechanical guy remove the tranny, disassemble and replace one worn thrust washer. All seemed fine until 72 engine
hours later I now have the same symptom....prop turns in forward but increasing engine rpm
doesn't increase prop speed. Reverse seems to be fine.
My question: I have the Hurth
manual and parts
list...can I open this tranny up myself and figure out what needs doing? I'm in a small town in Mexico
with no bonafide transmission
shop that I have any confidence in. A new tranny can be bought in the US but is expensive and difficult to get here...especially right now...
Also: After 72 hours...could this be a linkage problem...? Shift lever seems to be moving as it should.....
