View Full Version : Please help with my jato
04-16-2006, 08:39 PM
Ok heres my problem. after i got hte jato and the stock tires wore out, i bought 2.2 wheels and bigger beefier tires. I had to gear the jato lower, so i bought a 58 tooth spur gear. It ran pretty good for a while. I didnt drive it for a week or so, and when i tryed to start it it wouldnt start. i kept messing with it, and finally figured out that to get it started i had to keep the back tires off the ground. When it starts the wheels take off spining by there selves. Its like i got the gas pushed in but i dont, I checked the servo to make sure it wasnt keeping the throttle open and it isnt. If i set the jato on the ground after i get it started, if i dont give it some gas, it dies. It will try creeping forward and it will just die. I have tryed everything, from tuning to taking stuff apart and still cant find the problem. Please help

How's the clutch look? Is the spring broken?

Fink is right, your clutch is probably broken.

ok which part is the clutch, the part with 2 banana like objects that have a spring around them or the part with 3 shoes on it thats under neither the spur gear. the spring came off a while back and i put it back on, and it worked fine then it started doing this, so i took it back apart and it was fine and still have same problem
Your spring could be weak causing this same problem.

Eather the spring is too weak or the shoes could be wore out.
Take the engine out.
Then take off the cluch bell.
There!! The cluch should be right in front of you! Atlest i think.

this could have been luck for me and i dont even know what this does but when that happen to me i moved one of the switches that is on the bottom of the tq transmiter. and that fixed it right away. both of my swithes are to the right, idk if this will work but its worth a try.

well that spring is kinda loose, maybe that is the problem

That's called reversing the servos. I highly doubt that will work....BUT......it's worth a try.

you didnt loosen the low speed to much and pop it out did you ?
check the lsn or if you took the servo off you might have put the part that controlls the speed on thr wrong notch.......i have no clue what im talking about.....my lhs fixed the same problem, but when they told me what happened i was in lala land lol

well, i took the spring out, i cut off like 1/8 on an inch, and put it all back together, now the clutch spring is real tight in there, and i started it up and it seems like it aint doin it no more. I will run it tomorrow and see if it fixed it. Thanx
