well i got the spur gear and replaced it and the wheels are turning now but, there's a couple issues now. first of all could somebody please check this quick video clip of me rocking the spur gear while holding the clutch bell to confirm i set it correctly? i want to be extra careful i set it up correctly since they only had a steel spur gear for the caldera and if it's not set properly i don't want the clutch bell to wear out and have to replace that - video link: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/38834766/MVI_0814.MOV
ok first issue, after i put everything back together my brakes aren't responding. i made a video:
how can i fix the brakes?
also i tried to run it anyway and when i throttled the engine died, i was able to run it around in the drive way in small bursts but, when i got it in the alley and hit the throttle harder it died. after that i tried to start it and i can't get it to start.
these are the needle settings redcat told me but, i don't recall the needles being that far in, i couldn't get mine to start last time until the LSN was out about 6 turns. i tried to put everything back to factory settings but, it won't start.
HSN: 3 turns out from fully closed
LSN: 2.5 turns out from fully closed
does that sound right?
that means i turn in the needles all the way (clockwise) like I'm screwing in a screw until it reaches the end, then i back it out those number of turns mentioned?
