    Ive been trying to smoothen my chain. I opened the drive shaft where the chain connects to the motor. and didnt really do too much with it.

    Then when i put it back together the peice that is suppose to go in between the cog to activate the clutch goes all the way in instead of sticking a little bit out so the clutch can be pulled on.

    What do you think has happened?

    Ive included a pic.

    there should be a little ball bearing in there as well
    look around on the floor it probably fell out and you didn't notice
    it is the same diameter as the pin is thick

    I just had this same problem. Couldn't get the clutch to work. Gotta love MBF, I found the solution in 20 minutes. The bearing was sitting there on the garage floor, plain as day. Thanks guys!
