Beneteau 367. Always shifts into forward without fail. Reverse is a different story. Sometimes it goes right in, sometimes nothing, sometimes weakly in reverse. Check all the linkage, looks good. Cable brackets are good. Locknuts in place. Shifter working as per normal. Clutch lever seems to fully engage in both fwd and rev. Is there a way to adjust things in the tranny to engage the rev gear? Is rev frictional or what? Any links to shop manual or personal/professional experience would be helpful.
This is a WAG, but I suspect that reverse is frictional. Hurth tends to build them that way. If so that's not good news.

So what I was thinking if it is a frictional reverse, is there a band that tightens when you toss the puppy into reverse? If so is there an adjustment on that band?
