I was having some trouble with my 81 garelli super sport xl: Float was stuck oped fixed that, No spark, plug was shot , gotta new one. Leaked transmition oil, Got a new gasket.
So for the transmition I changed the transmition fluid and added 1 quart of 10w-30 motor oil put the new gasket on, I let it idle for 10 mins then put it away for the night. 2 days later today, I take it for a ride and it wont shift into 2nd gear revs the engine really high and it only hits 20 mph, I was getting 37 mph before! I put some slack into the clutch cable , thought it might be grabbing and causing it to do this. The tranny can take about 1/2 quart more oil. my side cover has a hole for the drain plug, but the threads are stripped out! So to add oil I have to tak the cover off, I have a siliconed pny over the hole. Im going to check the transmition now. Is there anything I should be looking for when look at the gears, what actualy makes it shift into 2nd, or is it the factthat it needs more oil? Any help is greatly appreciated. THANKS!!
