I did narrow the starting problem to the reverse switch, I took the handle off and sprayed WD40 and freed up the switch and now it all works fine.. The problem now is to get the reverse handle back on.. I couldn't see how the spring was on the bolt and when I pulled the bolt out the spring popped and I wasn't able to see how it set in there.. I have made several attempts to get it all back together and it isn't easy.. There is also a rod that has to go into a hole at the same time as the bolt with spring on it has to go in.. Does any one have any tricks in getting this all back together?? and also how is the spring suppose to go in??
