2.Horizontal spring inside small gearbox broken ,this pushes on a detente ball which gives the feel when you have selected forward or reverse ,I could not feel the point when a gear had been selected.

3. Spring on outer throttle cable slider broken , this was allowing the throttle cable to pull before a gear had been fully engaged.

This may help if you have these sort of issues .

I bet that feels a whole lot better when you get it all back together. I pulled the throttle apart last year on my '77 and found 35 years of old grease and sand. Just a simple cleaning made a huge difference. Throttle lever clicks crisply in and out of gear now.
