    Default 4107 Engine wont go into reverse

    Hi

    We viewed a Project 31 for sale today with 2 Perkins 4107 engines.
    The owner told us that one of the engines wont go into reverse as the leg was not connected to the outboard properly.
    As I am new to all this and know nothing about engines can someone advise me if the owner is correct with his diagnosis and is it easy/cheap to fix?

    Thank you for your help.

    It could be. Not all sellers are truthful. I have opened engines/transmissions and found parts missing, broken, etc.. If the owner thinks it's a cheap/easy fix, make it a condition that he has it fixed. The 4107 and the 4108 that replaced it are good engines. Thousands, maybe millions were made in many countries. The engine is also used in tractors and industrial applications. I have one running a generator.
