hello all, i'm new to the forum. Got my Volcano for christmas.
I have finally encountered the first problem that has absolutely stumped me.
So I bought the 2 speed trans. that is supposed to be compatible. It was labeled Himoto, looks just like all the other 2speeds I have seen.
Installed it as well as the new clutch bell.
Here is where it gets screwy. So a friend upgraded to the 2speed before me. His works great.
And in order for him to get his to spin freely, he had to take out all the shims. None the less it WORKS.
Went to install mine, encountered the same problem with the shims. The clutchbell just wont spin freely with them installed.
However if reassembled with the single speed bell and all the shims, it spins fine.
Moving along, when I run it with the 2speed, the car will move but not like it should.
When starting on an incline it climbs very slowly, but the engine revs high.
THE CLUTCH IS SLIPPING.
After I kill the engine, there is definate smoke coming from the clutch bell, as well as discoloration.
Took the engine off and you can see burn marks on the clutch discs. I have the White 2 shoe clutch, looks like plastic almost.
I replaced the clutch and its still doing the same thing.
My one speed trans. has a stripped gear so I cant swap it to see if the 2speed trans. is causing the problem.
There arent any binding issues, it rolls smoothly.
Im at a loss here. If you need more info let me know, as I will be checking for updates regularly. I also have a digital camera if pictures are needed.
I am glad this forum is here, I hope someone can help me.
