Hefty bit of kit. You sure it's just a dog clutch?

No not sure at all. I looked at the support literature that came with the boat and it seems that it could be a gearbox with F-N-R

Looks a bit Paragonish, but they did make them to last back them.

I think it is a Paragon box. The operators manual says to not warm up the engine with the gearbox in the neutral position. Recommended procedure is to select fwd and nose the bow into the dock. What does that tell you Alan?

I should have read the manual at some stage? the cover will reveal all I guess. The last one I did was fed lube oil from the engine through the center of the crank (sbc). Don't know why they use that procedure. Dam hard to find parts, Looked in my pics of old and found this, though yours looked familiar. (not mine, in wrecking yard USA)
