you may need to adjust the screw on the 2 speed shifter, there are 2 of them, one keeps the shifter on the trans shaft, the other adjusts the shift rpms, clockwise shifts at higher rpm's , counter clockwise shifts at lower rpms, do it in 1/2 turn incriments. you access it from the bottom of the car, its behind the 2 spur gears, metal finish, turn the wheels and you will see the 2 grub screws come around.

Here bro is some pic's. Hey ehroof save these photo's and use them when ever you want, you seem to get more people asking you things like this. So enjoy and ask me I have a whole buch more about fly wheel pulling and pulling the whole two speed trans and replacing the gears. So just let me know. Eric
