Thanks for the explanation , I’m checking every component and wiring and making sure all is well . I did however find a inconspicuous ground wire that was grounded to the frame from the governor . I repaired it so I’ll take it back out and see if it works .

Ok , so if the car is idling and I reach down and squeeze the kick switch , should the engine die ?
And if the kick switch is bad will it not let it go into OD or just not let it kick out ?

You could always pull the plugs (or a few) and check the conditions of the carb mixture . Usually that’s a great tell tale sign of if it’s rich or lean . I’d like to check the accelerator pump operation . Maybe a missing pin or clip on the carburetor ?

Transmission chatter

Hi everyone , back again so another question on my 22nd
Driving it - runs, shifts , stops great ! Everything is going great . Step on the gas it goes !! Runs like a sewing machine
BUT ……..
Slowing down however there is a chatter almost as if a “brake shoe has came loose” type of chatter ONLY freewheeling and in gear . Push it up out of gear , sound stops . Clutch out or in no change .

I’d pull the head , clean it up make sure valves aren’t stuck open . Compression doesn’t have to be high ,as much as consistent across all 8 holes . Like 5 psi difference with all 8 . Good luck !!

Wow thank you Howard !!
Yea I’m sure I have the updated OD system I can tell by the schematic it’s much simpler than previous . I’ll be working on my cable then we’ll see what happens . Thank you so much again !!

Ok so I found more clues as to what is going on . The OD cable has came out of the “handle” inside the car and appears to be in the pulled position but the knob itself is all the way in . Also the two wires on the lockout switch are both unhooked from the knob as well .
