We rebuilt the westerbeke 50 in our boat and now the transmission is shot, not fixable. Anyone know where I might find a used one?

Very common gear, you should be able to find a used one $300-500, rebuilt $750-$1000 and new $1800. I had one rebuilt it lasted about one month 40 hours, then bought a new. I had that one rebuilt for free, but saving for a spare and don't really trust it to sell. Good luck.

Just a thought about that transmission: Mine was rugged and lasted a long time, but I screwed it up by adding too much ATF fluid. As I recall, it takes 500ml and it is really hard to see on the dipstick. I put more in and blew the gaskets. They were easy to replace and the transmission never gave me any trouble after that. Also, I wonder if folks understand the incredible stress put on a transmission when your drive train is out of line. Alignment of the engine with the shaft coupling is something that should be checked with some regularity or you run the risk of working on the transmission bearings.
FWIW.
