Rick Neary is the go to guy and can be reached at (732) 991-0694 or by email at Their team were key members of the Kanzaki service department at Mack Boring, so they know as much or more than anyone you could ever find about your transmission.

Keep an eye on the transmission lube and change it again if you have a chance. Each time you change it will help flush any debris and old (or new) metal particles, shavings, flakes etc. until you can pull and inspect it.

When you get back you can examine and check everything from the engine to the propeller nut on your own terms as you stated.

Feel free to PM me if you care to talk about this directly.

Awesome. Thanks so much.

Cardude- I don't have much experience with the guts of these, except a few litte sailboat engines yeas ago. Not a fan of any mechanical gearbox, but sometimes they are all that is available. Sounds like you have a good contact from the above post.
