Me thinks something else is the problem.
I have never had to or even heard of needing to bleed a transmission like that. :doh:
Think about a boat going over a steep wave. Sometimes the boat is almost standing on its tail and yet the transmission still works. And coast guard boats do full roll overs and keep going. Is this the first time you have tried the tranny since you got it back? Dumb question but is the oil level up to the mark?

The trannie has been running A OK a number of times since I got it back and reinstalled it, and the oil is up to the mark. Then all of a sudden, it doesn't engage. On reflection, I accept you're analysis of why it is unlikely to be a problem of air in the hydraulics, that something else is the problem.

At the moment, this has me snookered. :help:

No help here. Hope you figure it out, and once again it is something simple.

I suspect we both enjoy the cold steel of Ockham's hot razor. But sometimes, it's just a little hard to see. :wink:

I refuse to be beholden to a seemingly pernicious trannie. :wink:

So I went back to the comfortably familiar late this afternoon and glassed the internals of the engine box. I just went out to the shed again (11pm Noosa time) to check it, and it's looking good. I'm feeling better, good enough in fact to have another red. :D

The mystery of why the trannie refuses to behave like a trannie will reveal itself in due course. :roll: .... Until then ....

This is good stuff. #7 on page 34 might be a good place to start.

Thanks Ilker, Fuzz and Tom! :D

I can't open the Simplicity Marine website. As Fuzz can, I assume that it's my antivirus program blocking it. I'll work it out.
