Hi
I have a volvo penta sterndrive and I think the retaining pawl has given up as I can lift the drive from the down position to upright. Also, when going into reverse, the leg lifts up while still in low revs. When I put the throttle in froward gear I hear a clunk as the leg falls back down.Can anyone tell me how to rectify this situation. Is there a pin which has to be clipped back in?

Cheers

Stuart

Hi
To answer your question, I assume you have an older leg with the mechnical lifting system rather than the hydraulic trim.

On the retaining pawl assembly there is a single spring in the middle, this is the usual one that goes. I have one of these springs you are more than welcome to have, I will send you a PM with details if you wish.

There are 2 other springs actually on the pawls, these do not usually give any problem.

I hope this is of some help to you
