    I am currently looking at a 48ss with 6-71tib and Capitol gears. During survey the starboard trans puked out oil from the dipstick. Going by the gauges at the helm pressure on this trans was low at startup and underway 120psi. There wasn’t a long delay between neutral and forward, reverse. Any insight is appreciated.

    We should have the reports back Thursday. Personally I feel that the gauge is off and there are not mechanicals in the engine room
