I know there is supposed a pause for the trans. to shift out of neutral to spin, usually changing the timer always corrected this why won't the S.O.B. go into spin until I stop and start the timer?

I've already changed the timer and there is a few seconds that it pauses before the spin but when it starts only the pump is working until I momentarily turn off timer and cut it right back on, then it spins just fine

from the tech sheet:



should give enough time for the parts inside the Transmission to "shift into Spin"

You may have a "sticky" or worn Shift Pawl in the Transmission

OR the oil in the Transmission may be a little "thick"

Is this in a "cold" room ?


May need this kit (for inside the Transmission)



some parts may be available separately
