Man I hate to hear that! Hope it's not too much of a headache to fix.

Not uncommon for a Borg warner to lose the front seal. Fluid then leaks into flywheel housing. Trans has to come off the back of the engine. Usually seal can be replaced right there without tearing trans apart.

Clutches can be burned if they were slipping. Check for burnt smell in remaining fluid. Usually a good idea to refill trans and test it under load in both directions. If it works ok, then pull it and change seal.

If you are looking at leaving her in the JAX area there are two good marinas on the ICW just south of the St Johns. On the east side Beach Marine and on the west Palm Cove. We kept PASSAGE at Palm Cove for 13 years before buying a house on the water last year. Great crew there.

Cool!!!

Was it the front seal?

PITA getting the splines to engage. Cursing is allowed there.

Good to put some grease on the splines, too. Keeps wear to a minimum.

Do not let the bridge tenders Lure you too close to the bridge. Remember it is your boat and you are in command. before approaching an unfamiliar Marina call on the VHF And ask about depth and any current conditions you might need to know about. I learned that one the hard way.

Also ask the tow captains if you don't have information from another local source. I've always found them very cordial and helpful.

She will like it there. Lot's of boats sitting in Myrtle Beach and the vast majority of them don't have owners who live in Myrtle Beach. Now most live closer than you.
