Lost REVERSE gear on Ford Lehman - Paragon
Backing my CHB 34 trawler out of my slip, I lost reverse gear.
My mechanic opened up the Paragon transmission, and found a broken part, referred to as the "cowboy boot". If this is the only broken part, then it can be repaired in place. However, if the reverse strap is also broken, I will have to pull the transmission, and of course, the repair cost escalates rapidly. Also, the removal will require a new hatch to be cut in my parquet flooring! Thoughts?
