Carlson Challenger...tunnel hull v-drive w/ BBF 460
I have a tunnel hull w/ 460 bbf and it has a top loader casale v-drive. It worked ok for a while but was put in and out of gear while running and destroyed the shift dogs. I'm mechanically inclined but not familiar with v-drives. I opened the shift box and appears to be a 2 dog because there are 2 male features on the gear and 2 female features where the two lock together to put it "in-gear". Also, the shift fork is worn considerably and moves or turns a little bit in the shaft that the shift handle attaches to. I dont know if is supposed to move like it is or if it should have no play at all. If someone could help me with locating the parts I need and some instructions on how to replace them that would be awesome. I havn't got to9 run my boat at all this season and its almost over. I am also open to replacing with a newer model that would swap out easily f someone has one to sell. got about $1000 to work with. Thanks so much, Sean Moore, Payson AZ.
