Yamaha Hydradrive Problems me 370
Last weekend myself and my father were taking our Redbay to Cambletown until we reached the cock of arran and the engine appeared to have jumped out of gear. The boat instantly stopped and engine revved as if it was in neutral. We then tried to put it back in but it kept revving up. We left it for 5 mins and tried again. It worked!!! for another 30 mins then same again. left it 5 mins and were off again. This happened until we got back to the marina where it started to do it every 5 mins. Uh oh
Having had the boat lifted out my dad and big drew (Andy Gee) drained the oil out of the hydra drive and changed the filter. The Oil was absolutly boggin and thick. The filter showed some metal powder. Had this never been changed since the engine was run in or was this terminal??? Having changed the filter and put it all back together the boat was put back in the water but once again only revved up. The boat has come out the water again so we are llooking for answers
Has anybody encountered this with the hydradrive??
