Hurth gearboxes

burning clutches
Posted: 23 May 2003 - By: Klaus & Carol Wernsdorf
:( The hurth gear box in my Rival 32 keeps burning up the clutches at an alarming rate, it is driven by a 27 hp 3 cyl Perkins diesel engine. The prop is a good match and the alaignment is good too. The engine is running smooth also.
Are there any theories out there? It is getting very frustrating.
