Is everyone ready for the next challenge? Grrrrr....
Now that my Midget is running (and quite well I might add) and I've
decided to hold off on the
wire wheels (at least for the time being). Instead, the Prince has
raised his wand, wiggled his
nose, and created a new challenge for me. So once again, I need the
help of our experts (all of
you out there who've already gotten to that level in the Lucas saga).
Being the conscientous LBC lover, I did the usual lube and fluid check
before winter (without
snow) set in here (about a month ago). Topped off the fluids, greased
where needed and all that good stuff.
Since then, first gear has developed an attitude and a mind of its own.
(First gear with an
attitude? Sounds like my kids!) Sometimes I can't get out of first
gear now. This never
happened before I topped off the gearbox. And it doesn't always happen
even now. Only if I've driven the car for any length of time (30-60
minutes of driving). It acts like it's been glued in position --- with
a little gentle wiggling (of the shifter of course), first will let go
and I can go to the other gears without difficulty. None of the others
do this. And first doesn't do it on a short run or when the car is
Any suggestions???? Thanks again!
