Hi Mark,
I asked about this before on the forum and got a few responses but so far nothing worked out.
Our Streamline has a kick starter that jambs and won't turn the engine. I recently began looking at it again and still come up with a bevel gear interference problem, perhaps worn shims.
Everything in the gearbox proper appears to be working as it should and the engine itself is free. The kick starter frees when the clutch is disengaged and the gearbox can go through all the gears spinning the rear wheel but releasing the pedal and re-engaging the clutch causes the starter to jamb again.
I'm pretty much resigned to pulling the engine and I guess I'm just looking for some bit of confirmation that I'm on the right track.
If anyone else has had this problem I'd be happy to hear from you too.
