Yes, I expect they are pretty good, and rebuildable - just difficult to get hard parts for.

Don't like the temp dif on mine.

My reverse rotation (Stb) CR2 was rebuilt at about 4500hrs. It didn't fail but had gotten noisey. I just had the port one rebuilt at 5000hrs because it was getting worn inside and a bit noisy - though it still worked perfectly. There are a fair number of good rebuilders around the country and they hold on to their parts to do their own rebuilds.

Anyone know the socket size for the nut that holds the coupling on to the splined shaft on a CR2? I'm flinging oil from the splines due to a loose nut.

The joys of a CR2. The one-time use nut is $43.

Greetings,
Mr. m. I think there may be 2 sizes. A call to American Diesel should confirm or deny.

How about some loctite instead?
When I rebuilt my 72C series, I did not get a new nut.
I dont think I did use any loctite, and it has been 15 years since.

Hi Marin,

By this do you mean slamming from fwd to reverse or vice versa or slipping the gear - bit like riding the clutch if it was a car?

According to my CR2 service manual there is only one nut, part number 10-00-149-034. I measured mine and it is 1.665" which sounds like 1 11/16.

If I want to know anything about a Velvet Drive I would give a call to Jim Aspel at Federal Marine Transmissions in Chicago (Countryside IL). Ph: 708.352.2200 He rebuilt a port side tranny for me last fall. I was extremely impressed. I have a somewhat obscure model 1014-001 tranny that apparently some parts are extremely hard to come by. It seems Borg warner dropped this transmission from their line some time in the late 80's and just scrapped the parts. Many parts are common with the mainstream models but some are not. He warned me that the reverse rotation starboard tranny could be a problem and to take good care of it. I was extremely happy with his work. It wasn't cheap, but it might have been a whole lot worse if he had not given me a break on many of the parts. I went away with an absolutely good feeling that the tranny was probably (certainly so) better built than it left the factory. The guy has records by serial number, of a overwhelming number of BW Velvet Drives and can tell you every thing that has passed thru his shop. Including inspection measurements. He repairs transmissions far beyond Chicago and was credibly critical of of other 'experts'. He apparently worked for Borg Warner for a time and was very connected with the factory engineering team. I believe you can trust what he says. Give him a call, Have time to talk, he likes to talk, but listen close, because is the most knowledgeable guy I have ever run into.
