Excellent call on the spring. When I looked them over, I was thinking something in there looked odd, but never did grab my manual. That, could well indeed, be the problem. Pushy, not pully.

So, to save you from having to explain.....


Take the actuator arm out, selinoid out, reverse the spring to the outside of the push arm. Reinstall, and test. Test it without any oil, in case it does not fix it, and add oil, if it does. Saves making a big mess, again. Not to mention the liquid gold.

I wanted to give a quick update as I received some valuable advice from the board here. Once I moved the spring to the opposite side of the lever, the solenoid problem cured itself.

I have now my shovel running and once I unpack the rest of my parts (we had a cross country move recently) I'll get her on the road and ride her for a bit.

Then I'll create a proper build thread with pics and of course some more questions.
Thanks all
