Re: Hurth Gearbox heat exchanger coupling

Hi Alan,
I posted this quite awhile back but the Bowman Guy in Malta (I was buying a new spare from him) told me that the transmission heat exchanger rarely (kind of like never) fails UNLESS the end caps are tightened too much.  This cracks the solder joints.  I guess tighten them snuggly and then check them immediately when you splash or open the seacock, then with motor on, etc. and check for sea water in the transmission oil frequently for a while.
