Rebuilt - can not get into second
Hey everyone - I posted this at the end of an old thread but it seems time to start a new thread. We rebuilt my wife’s engine, as I wanted to learn more about the thing and we had to replace the bearing behind the clutch basket. I put everything back together and it is running great except that I only have 1st gear and neutral. The prawl spring is looking good and in place but with the right case off and while turning the wheel, I can’t get it to off neutral into second, and it won’t shift when put together and using the shifter/clutch either.
I’m thinking it has to be related to how I put the transmission back together (maybe carelessly put a fork in the wrong spot?). I hand-tested things as I went but who knows. So I need to pull the engine out again and break it all the way down I suppose. I am hoping someone might have some good starting places or lessons learned. Obviously if there’s anything I can do that doesn’t involve pulling the engine, I’d be stoked!
Thanks for any ideas you have
