Default Bam 1350 gone bad

2nd run tranny went out while running about 4,500. Reverse still worked but **** down immediately and looked. Fluid in the bilge but canít see where the heck it came from. Not the oil cooler, hoses or fittings nor the vent tube. Dip stick was grey in color and obviously smelled.

front seal blow out? What a bummer. I probably should have just used my fresh rebuilt c72ís.

Anyone? Bought them from good long standing member here. Thought they were fresh takeouts but canít remember.

havenít gotten. Back to boat yet to investigate but still mind boggling where the oil blew out at and what wouldíve caused the problem.

With the cooler and such, it will be hard to get the inspection plug out to see. When mine went, I could see the front seal sticking out. It was caused by a failing drive plate.

Gray isnít good. Probably ate something on the trans. Does a 1350 use carbon fiber clutches? Itís probably those. Interesting that itís locked in reverse. They usually fail forward. Mine did (72c).

That really sucks btw.

Iím sure Marc from BAM will chime in at some point.

I had fluid puke out of my port trans last time outÖ will be out today investigating. Hoping I do not run into any issues too.

Bummer

Is it a plugin ? Could also be the rear seal. What drives do you have?

If you send me the serial number I can tell you when we last saw it.

They are plug in. I purchased from TomFTM a couple years ago and they had 48 + - hours on them since picking up from rebuild at your place. He did say though itís been probably 9 - 10 years ago. Tomís a great guy. Iíll get the serial number. Since most the oil is to the rear on a step part of the bottom I believe the rear seal went out. I need to confirm today the drive is free. I at least got my long time project boat on the water this year even if it was only for an hour.

9-10 years since it was rebuilt and 4ish since you bought them... Seals are likely long dried out and dead...grey fluid is generally not good (major service/teardown)

thatís the main reason I splashed it. Have all winter. Didnít wanna wait til spring and have issues. I wanted the winter for cabin fix me up.

In this hobby I get all of it and always expect the worse and hope for the best. Just the way it is. Iím not playing down bam at all. I just wanted to confirm the history and called Tom.

Now another thing I see is oil coming out my dry pipes on that side when I fired it for PS today to get it to the launch. Didnít look like type f though but rather engine oil mixed with the water dumps. Wtf. If a trans cooler went bad I shouldnít have had any in the bilge though. Have more than one issue going on now. Fk.

I did over rev and limiters were at 7k. I was only doing a slash for shake down and not on lake MI so wasnít a concern at this point.
