I've had my Jato about a week. New to this. After running today the truck would not roll freely. I don't want to force it and break something. Has any one had this happen? Was going to pull apart the clutch next?
check the clutch spring and look fore someting stuck in the bell, and look at the spur and see if you picked up a small rock. just a place to start.......
nutty like a squirrel turd....!!!!!
You might want to try adjusting the spring tension on the brake pushrod. Try turning that black plastic screw on the brake push rod counter clock wise a little by little. That should fix your problem, If not it's probably some thing els.
Here is a pic, The plastic black screw is the thing to the right of the pic on the brake push rod, Just incase you dident know what i was talking about. http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images...rake3.jpg/sr=1
No luck. Clutch spring looks good, spur looks good. The spur will only rotate counter clockwise. One wheel will spin while the other spins opposite but if you try them both together there is a clicking sound coming from the transmission. Did check the brake that's not hanging me up. Thanks for your thoughts I suppose I got a junk tranny?stripped gears?
If you are hearing a clicking sound, I would have to say that sounds like a striped gear. I would buy new tranny gears, If they sell them. But that is what it sounds like to me.
Good luck with your JATO.
before you do that make sure that the clutch bell and spur gear are not paired up too tight that will cause it to not roll freely and make a clicky noise. I had that happen when i wreaked mine one time.
