I broke in a new 3.3 yesterday, I ran a total of 8 tanks. It was running ok except it was trying to creep forward when stopped. I messed with the idle speed needle but I also had to turn the throttle trim some to apply the brakes alittle. I had a 15/36 gear combo and today the creeping got worse. I messed with the needles and finally it went WOT and stripped the spur. I put on a 38t and I thought I meshed it right but the same thing happened again. I was adjusting the idle speed needle and it went WOT and I lost the second spur gear.
Tomorrow when I get more gears I'm going to tighten the slipper some and tighten the mesh alittle bit. I looked at a drawing and noticed I put the bearing washers on wrong. I'm going to fix that then set the needles back to factory and try again. When I tighten the slipper nut I read that u tighten it all the way then back off half a turn. Is that a good starting point?
Could those bearing washers on wrong and a loose slipper be my problem? Or I just had it meshed wrong? Any input for me, thanks
