2009 Jan – New tranny & engine overhaul

Jan 2009 – New transmission, major engine overhaul

The transmission had failed in Ensenada and had a temporary (borrowed) transmission that needed to be replaced with the new transmission. Since the engine had to be removed to get at the transmission, it was decided to do a major overhaul on the engine at the same time.

The 40 hp Yanmar engine had 1200 hours on it at the time.
