Hello Keith. My name is Tan.
How are you shifting the drive? Are you shifting quickly or easing into gear?
You have to pop these drives into gear. If you ease into gear it will hesitate and some times stall. There is plenty of room in the lever before it gives the engine throttle.
This drive is moving metal parts together so you have to pop it in gear. There is no clutch in the drive.
In this diagram the red arrow is the shifter the blue arrow is the forward gear. These 2 components have to mesh together. Easing into gear causes problems with the interrupt switch making engine stall.
Does this make sense?
