Hi Dave,

Yes. I should have mentioned this. I have tried this and it seems to make no difference.
Any thoughts on what type of Transmissions Amel used back them?

If you engage reverse by moving the lever on the transmission itself, do you still have the problem? Just thinking that it would be good to try that to eliminate the cable/linkage as part of the problem.

Hello everyone,

My 1986 Sharki, Hull #142 is having some minor trouble shifting into reverse. The problem has been getting worse over the last couple years. It seems the transmission will not engage into reverse until the prop speed has slowed right down or perhaps stopped. I am also unable to read the make of the transmission on our Perkins 4.108.
Any thoughts or info would be appreciated.

Thanks Tom
