I took the machine out of a heated shop tonight. It was 70 degrees so this may not have been the best test for my situation cause like I said the warmer the machine is the better it works. I butted up to a slab of concrete and gave it full throttle in all forward gears. The input shaft to the transmission did not turn any without the wheels turning. This should rule out the transmission right?
It does make me question where does the transmission clutch pressure come from?
Do you have any more suggestions on where to go with this.
