    Default Hi again . '59 Owens 25&#

    Hi again . '59 Owens 25' with a 283 and velvet drive .Finally got it running good and took it out yesterday and ran great all day until ...Iwas doing 2300 rpms and it popped out of gear.I shut it down and checked the linkage and for any other problems i could see .The linkage was fine no blown hoses. could that be the clutches slipping .I started back up and put in gear and nothing .I pushed the throttle up a little and the prop shaft started turning . so i headed for the barn. About five minutes later it popped out again and never turned again Vessle Assist to the rescue.Any input would be appreciated. Dennis

    Default " Before going and replacing t

    " Before going and replacing the drive check your fluid level. It should be on the stick with engine and drive warm and idling. Also check for blockages in the tranny cooler and smell the fluid. Is it milky or discolored. Does it smell burnt. Also verify that the linkage is properly hooked up, with no slack, etc. Good luck and post your findings. Kim "
