Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Gearbox

Hi Heinz,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
As Eric notes, some more information would help.
By "gearbox" can we assume you mean the "C" drive (not the transmission gearbox)?
Where is the oil-water mixture leaking from? - around the propeller shaft? -from the outside of the wearing out bushing? - from the drain plug? from the front of the "C" drive lower unit? from the upper seals where the drive shaft enters in the engine room?
Is the oil milky?
With no shaft brake, that's obviously not the problem, but is the transmission in neutral?
Does the propeller turn when you start the engine and put it in gear?
Cheers, Craig SN68
