Walter V_drive
« on: November 08, 2019, 01:27:26 PM »
Has anyone rebuilt the Pearson Special RV-10 v-drive. I am in El Salvador with a failed Rv-10. A local shop I've used in the past replaced bearings and seals. When reinstalled the unit vibrates in fwd or rev at idle and higher revs. Also emits a hum. Sounds a bit like a complaining differential.

Sound & vibration can come from other sources.  Check the cutlass and the alignment of the couplers from the engine to the V-drive and from the V-drive to the prop shaft.  Could also be the damper on the flywheel.
