When a 3 speed warford is in nutreal and you put the hand lever into high, should the rear try to engage and start moving the car forward before stalling? I thought there as no connection to the rear end when In between gears? Something doesn't sound right to me. Forgive the spelling errors im on an iPhone and autocorrect won't cooperate...
If the Warford is in Neutral, the engine/transmission should be completely disengaged from the Rear axle.
With my Chicago OD in Neutral, I can let the clutch out in high and it will idle all day.
It sounds like the Warford isn't actually in Neutral.
I agree something is amiss. BUT, with the handlever forward and when i push the low pedal (in wardford neutral) nothing happens. When I let up the pedal into high, it chugs and stalls. I check the shift placement of the warford and it is between under and direct in neutral.... This is what I don't understand.
I suspect that the Clutch and low band are not adjusted correctly...and when the clutch is let out in high...both :Low band and the High are grabbing...killing the motor.
Neutral = no connection from the engine to the driveshaft. Clayton could be on to it. Back off the band and see what happens.
My 26 Roadster did that after a band adjustment and the yolk adjustment was wrong. I went through the adjustment again per the book and life was good. Clayton most likely nailed it. Try this link. PK
thanks guys, will give it a try.
Clayton, you got that Right.
I always start my car in Warford Neutral.
I agree with the things said here, however, the fact that Matt says it starts moving the car forward with the Warford in neutral suggests a different problem to me. I've never used a Warford, but occasionally I experience a similar problem with my Muncie. The shift lever will slip free of the H pattern, leaving it in gear while the shift lever appears to be in neutral. In the Muncie it's easy to spot and correct. I don't know about a Warford.
ComON there is Supposed to be No mech connection to the rear wheels when in Warford Neutral... If the engine loads up and stalls
