Reverse gear/transmission
« on: November 18, 2011, 10:34:19 AM »
I have to replace my transmission seals as I am leaking transmission oil. So all will be disconnected (shaft, reverse gear, etc). Does anyone have any experience with this, and could you please pass on your recommendations and insight!

Thanks

Okay then, I had this repaired/rebuilt by Nopper Transmission repair in Fairhaven, MA
$600, I delivered to them
Included opening, inspection, replacing 2-3 seals (2 shot), replaced U-joints, sand blast, acid cleaning, 2 coats prime and 2 coats Volvo green paint. Was told these Tranny's are excellent for their simplicity and reliability, etc. Looks new now (was a rust bucket)

Ditto - thanks!  I recently found that although SeaFever had been repowered with a larger Volvo they did not replace the transmission - but rather fashioned a mounting adapter to make it fit.
