I have two calderas, one is brand new never been ran, I have made a video you can see me moving the spur gear back and forth and there's enough play that it moves easily in any direction.

Now here's the caldera i'm having issues with, you can see when i try to move the spur gear it's very stiff. the spur gear mesh doesn't seem to be the issue since i checked it and it's the same on both vehicles. what could be the issue? could it be the clutch bell? video link:https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...dera-stiff.mov
