Okay, okay, for all you Amish reading, I am not disparaging you. In fact its a bit of an homage. I mean part of the fun of our boats is staying in time… wait.. if you’re Amish, should you be reading this? mmmmmm? BUSTED. Anyway, yesterday, I decided to dive in and figure out why my shifter wouldn’t shift all the way forward.
I slowly started removing the shift arm, and then, thought. Mmmm this is the one from the new engine which was in a different boat, and??? So I went to the original H trans that I still have and pulled the shift arm.
NOW. I am not all that smart about these things. I had tried everything else, because all shift arms are the same? Right? WRONG! It’s been years, I have tried adjusting the clutch, the shift rod. And was going to yank the trans. And then BAM
And guess what. NAILED IT. But, one thing held me up. I tried all my newer tools. And nothing fit just right, so I thought. What the hell. and grabbed the old tool bag and guess what. PERFECT fit. And that’s when I went Amish on it. Old Hammer, 1930’s music, and just basked in the time warp I was in. Who knew my transmission could shift me into reverse 90 years
Thank god I the iphone 11 Pro was invented in 1937… I could take photos and bug Dave VanNess all at the same time. Wooohooo! Getting ready for Lake Dora.
