OK, rain quit, put the boat in, NO forward or reverse!!!! like you were to push the rev, button in....tranny dipstick check, low and MILKY??
the normal amount of water in the bilge area after an outing!!
got out last wed. It ran great, no problems...didn't drain it! ....that water is MILKY also!!!(in the bilge):confused:
Hoses look fine!! boat on trailer prop turns!! not locked up...
the only thing that truly bothers me is the milky in the bilge.
just drain and fill, and see what happens! or look deeper?:confused:

I'd start by checking the cable linkage. Perhaps something came loose. Have someone at the helm shift in/out of gear and make sure the shift lever is movong back and forth. If it isn't moving, you have found your problem, if not, keep looking!!

I think you have to at least drain and fill the tranny to get rid of the milky fluid. I would still want to find out why? Sounds like fluid was coming out and water going into your tranny.

I'm willing to bet money that you blew a hole in your transmission cooler. Only because I just did the same thing to my boat. It ran fine at an idle or on the trailer, but when I went to put it gear it started to over heat. Water in your tranny looks like a milky coffee color. Transmissin coolers are around a hundred dollars or cheaper depending on your transmission at discount inboard. www.skidim.com

That's a thought! I'll check that tomorrow, it was a milky whiteish in color! coffee w/cream..The boat did not overheat though!! it did'nt have time to, this started as soon as I fired it up! I put in on my channel, it's only about 2 boats wide, my boy backed me up, I start it on the trailer,he backs up and lets me slid off.. I must then give a little gas to not go into the far bank!.. notta.. I am familier with skidim tho..

cool, thanks
