    OK, so part of my problem this morning, was the drive clutch. I pressed down the left handle to engage the transmission, and the the handle didnt pop back up. So the transmission is permentaly engaged, i can reverse, neutral, and forward. I just cant dissengage. When i pressed down the leaver on the handle bar, it felt tight, like a tight cable, But i have no clue.

    Is it a cable linkage or rods? Mine is a seris of rods and sometimes they stick at the joints, a little WD40 usually solves the problem. If it is a cable check where the inner cable leaves the housing and make sure it is not kinked. Also check the return spring to be sure it is connected. You could also try disconeccting the linkage and see if neutrals then you knw its in the linkage.

    Possible, but i live in place where you face will peel off from the dryness. The humidity barley gets out of the single digits. When i work on it tonite, i will spray down the cable housing. Thanks kd.

    I think you guys are right. As usual. I havent had a chance to look at it tonite, but i did fire it up when i got home. Somehow between this morning and tonite, it fixed it self. Works smooth as glass now.

    I swear I didn't read the other thread before I wrote that.
    Just thinking about what happened to me last year.
    I'm not used to a gravel driveway.
