- - When not running I have some drag (not a whole lot) while in gear, I can still roll it pretty easily. Neutral rolls freely
- - When running I can brake to a stop in 1st without stalling, however, it will pull away (pretty quickly) if I release the brake.
- - When running Won't shift from 1st to neutral when stopped
- - When running or not running, Clutch lever is still attached, it doesn't appear to disengage the clutch ... ever (this one I'm pretty sure is NOT working as intended).
1 is pretty normal
On 2, if you mean that you simply release the brake without touching the gas, then either your idle speed is too high, or your engagement point is too low. More on that in a second.
3 is being caused by whatever is causing 2. You can't expect to find neutral with that kind of drag happening.
4 is a little weird, even when it's right. The Z-Start Pro at idle or at rest is disengaged already, so there is an almost complete lack of tension on the lever. When the engine is revved up to around 3000, the clutch should be completely engaged, and you are supposed to adjust it so that the cable has about 3/8" of play at that speed. At speed, the clutch should feel more like normal, but it will still be pretty light. Your release arm/push rods could be incorrectly assembled, and the installed gap (see the Rekluse
manual) could be wrong.
ZSP allows you to adjust two facets of its operation; the speed at which it engages (engagement point) and how smoothly or abruptly it engages (engagement rate). The engagement point is controlled by the springs you choose to install, and the rate is controlled by the number of balls installed on the centrifugal pressure plate.
Rekluse has manuals available for download at: http://rekluse.com/ormanuals.shtml
. Be sure to select your 426 from the list and choose the manual or tuning chart for the Z-Start Pro, and not the Z-Start.
Bear in mind that it's possible there could be a more basic reason for the clutch to drag that hard, like warped plates, etc., that would affect a normal clutch, but if it rolls OK in gear with the engine off, I don't think I'd start there.
