So, I have been running my No 14 for a while now, and she is running quite sweetly. However, ever since I have had her I have found that it can be quite hard to change into forward gear. I didn't notice this when she was in manual mode as it took quite a bit to get the reverser lock to release.

However, since I have fitted a servo to the reverser, I notice that it seems to go in almost constant strain to get her into forward gear. Putting in reverse is fine, but there is a definite resistance when sliding into forward gear. I can usually get the strain off the servo by just putting it a touch back towards mid gear, but I would rather cure the problem full stop.

And before anyone asks no the servo isn't throwing to the full extent of the expansion link. Wink This is more a resistance to set the gear into the forward direction which doesn't appear when putting into reverse.

I was just wondering if anyone else had a similar experience before I send an e-mail off to Accucraft? I'm rather hoping its a easy fix rather than having to send the engine away.
