Changing gears

OK, saw a thread on transmissions, which reminded me about a little problem I am having.

Hard to change gears. Seems to get stuck sometimes when I am trying to put in forward or reverse. If I am in forward and try to go to reverse, sometimes I have to inch it forward so that I can get it into reverse, and vise versa.

Any ideas what the deal is?

First thing I would check is your idle, if it's too high that can make it difficult to shift.

Now that I think about it, I think I've axed this before. Damn, I'm getting old. Can't remember shit!

I assume there is an easy accessable idle screw?

Yep pull the engine cover off, driver's side of the carb on top is a big thumb screw you can adjust by hand... get it up to operating temp and then turn it down slowly from there. Super easy

Sometimes things should be supposed to replace, kindly check fluid level and not proper then replace the same. clean the cables and housing.
