tomos wont start cant pedal backwards

So I replaced my head and cylinder gaskets today on my A3, now the pedal will not go backwards, therefore not allowing me to start it. The rear wheel does rotate backward and I can pedal it forwards. It ran fine just before this any ideas to what's my problem?

Re: tomos wont start cant pedal backwards

can you turn the flywheel? sounds like somethings stuck on assembly up top.

what did you find as the result of your prior thread?:

Re: tomos wont start cant pedal backwards

got the cylinder off, but destroyed it in the process.*( a lot of banging )

clean off the carbon buildup on the head and installed a spare cylinder

I took off the right pedal to straighten it could that have something to do with my problem.

Yep when you took the pedal off, the shift moved and the large U shaped clip that engages the sit shaft gear for back pedal starting has come dis engaged. Remove pedal and clutch cover , engage clip in the space it needs to go while keeling pedal shaft pushed in. Re assemble!

Re: tomos wont start cant pedal backwards

remove cover on left or right side ?

I was also reading about a grease trick once I engage the clip .have you heard about that ?
