I've got an issue with my 78 Puch Maxi. Long story short, the rear wheel is spinning at idle. The issue seems to be related to the starter plate because when it is running I can get the rear wheel to stop by loosening the tension in the clutch cable. Doing so however makes it impossible to start. Any ideas?
One thing I am not understanding, what keeps the starter plate off of the clutch plate when running? It seems like a spring should separate them, but this is evidently not the case.
Thanks in advance.
