ZF Hurth HSW630V1 Not going into gear. Help!

Hi All,

I have a 1999 230VRS (V-Drive). As mentioned in the title the transmission is the ZF Hurth HSW 630V1. Last weekend I changed the transmission oil and filter (using 15W-40 motor oil) and took the boat out. It ran like a top for about 4 hours, then as I was pulling my son on a tube the transmission unexpectantly went out of gear and would not go back into gear. I messed around with it some before flagging another boater down and got a tow back to the dock.

It made no unnatural sounds prior or during the failure, it seemed to just go into neutral and would not shift into forward or reverse after.

I verified the oil level is normal, that the shift linkage appears to be working properly and that the prop is still connected to the transmission drive shaft. The external pulley on the transmission spins when someone turns the prop. It just seems like it won't go into gear.

Before I take it to someone and spend a bunch of $$, I wanted to ask if anyone else has had a similar experience and can help me determine if the issue is something simple.

Thanks a lot in advance.

Chris (new member - have owned this boat only ~ 2 years and have never had a problem until now)

Broken shifter cable?

See if the cable is moving the shift lever on the housing.

Yes, the 3 things I've checked:

1) Shift linkage on transmission moving when I move the shift lever
2) Oil level - OK
3) Transmission main shaft turning when prop is turned

Ended up taking it in to the dealer.. I will report back on what they find. My guess is going to be a new tranny.

It sounds to me that it isn't building pressure in the forward clutches. Hopefully just the pump.

I've got the same issue.

@mattkalin - What was the result when you took it to the dealer?
