ok, here goes the saga....
just bought first sailboat (after 30 years of motorboating).
we are on a pretty tight budget
, but came across a nice old sailboat at a good price
is a 79 2qm15
. Ran fine when we bought it.. BUT on the first trip, we had to motor
quite a bit due to lack of wind
, and havint to travel 30 miles dead into the wind
As i got to the marina smoke started coming out of the galley
... uh oh....
shut her down, no more smoke...
got into the marina and found out that i had no reverse.....
after i got her into the slip i inspected the engine
.. NO DIPSITCK/PLUG IN THE GEARBOX
So i remover the motor
and unbolt the bell housing and gearbos slides right off... no problems yet.
to my shop (i am a pretty hand wrench spinner) and get side cover off and look at gearshafts..
then try and get flange offf the output shaft... no dice... broke 2 three jaw pullers..soaked in penetrating oil
.. tried propane
heat, still no dice...
so i find a 1980 2qm20
online that has a fuel pump
problem and a good transmission
for less that the $700.00 in parts
needed for my gearbox...
buy the motor and get it here, and cannot get the gearbox off.....
the input shaft seems to be stuck in the dampener (clutch, or whatever it is called).....
so my question is how do i get the gearbox off without trashing it?
The bellhousing is different that the 2qm15
, but the gearbox is the same. All the perimeter bolds are off... so is there anything i am missing?
