Transmission Assemblies

Transmission rebuilds and installations are not for the faint of heart. Here are some troubleshooting tips to make sure you're covered every step of the way. If nothing else, you can talk to your marine mechanic in a language he can understand.

1. Check the shift cable travel for full engagement into the forward and reverse detents.
2. Verify the engine/transmission to prop shaft alignment.
3. Check and replace the damper plate if needed (it almost always is needed).
4. Flush all oil lines and replace the cooler.
5. Check the oil level when hot and also immediately upon shutdown.
6. Replacing the oil cooler and damper plate is especially crucial - most manufacturers will not honor a warranty claim if a new cooler and damper plate were not also installed with a new transmission.

Even the best mechanic can miss these things. Armed with a little knowledge can save you big bucks down the line.
