Hi there, Last weekend I managed to finally get my Barkas up and running, and after fixing a few coolant leaks I managed to take it for a drive around the block. Some issues occurred however. Sorry for the long post! First start: Engine in stationary, clutch pressed in: started & ran fine, also with the clutch pedal up again. I had no idea where the reverse gear is, as the plate on the poke was missing. Some internet searching later and I noticed where it was. First drive: I put the car in first gear, pressed the clutch down, started the car: It went forward for <1 meter, even though the clutch was pressed in. It stayed stationary after that. I let the clutch come up, and it started driving (as expected). After 10 meters, it popped out of 1st gear. I pressed the clutch down again, and managed to drive around the block, testing 1st, 2nd and 3rd gear. I parked the car, turnt the engine off and came back a few mins after I had discovered where the reverse was. I couldn't get the lever into the position for the reverse, so I mucked about with the freewheel lever under the dashboard. The lever was positioned in the position: I noticed that when pushing the lever up, it moved stuff in the gearbox. Information on the freewheel is scarce on the internet, so I pushed my luck. When moving it further up (as seen from the picture), I managed to get the gear lever in reverse (which is probably coincidental.) After starting the engine and releasing the clutch pedal, the car started moving reverse as well, also as expected. Switching from reverse to 1st gear however, wouldn't work when the engine was running. With the clutch down, I couldn't press the lever into 1st anymore, it made a slight whining sound. Turning the engine off, putting the lever in 1st gear and then starting it up again allowed me to drive forward again. After this, I had to turn off the engine every time I wanted to switch from reverse/forward motion gears. When I finally wanted to park it in the garage, it wouldn't go in first anymore. After starting it agian on sunday, moving the lever into reverse gear while the engine was running (clutch pedal down), would grind the gears. I stopped trying to drive after this. I figured the freewheel lever might be involved, and noticed the following: With the lever in the position it is in like in the picture above, pushing the car forward in gear 1 to 4 (engine off, clutch pedal up), didn't rotate the engine. Pushing it backward did move the engine. Moving the lever in this position: Caused the cable to hang loose, but the engine rotated in all gears when being pushed, either forward or backward. I expected this behaviour, but I am slightly confused as the lever was never in this position since I bought it. Despite the lever position, the car will not engage any gear at the moment without grinding gears. I suspect the clutch may not be releasing properly, but since I have no clear idea of how the freewheel operates, I hoped to find answers here. Thanks in advance!
