View Full Version : Lost reverse AGAIN.....

05-19-2013, 10:48 AM
Last summer I lost reverse - bought a used velvet drive 71c 1:1 in nice shape and installed it; worked great. Now I have same issue, no odd noise, vibration or anything - just won't engage in reverse, feels like it's in neutral. Annoying. I've tried moving shift lever on trans by hand and it won't engage.

So....is this a common issue with these transmissions? It's the size of a basketball and probably weighs 100lbs, given this buld quality and it's simplicity I'd think that these would last forever.

Does anyone have instructions for rebuilding one of these and a recommendation for a rebuild kit?

Thank you, other than lack of reverse boat has been running perfectly this season.

Should be everything you need.
