Two year old Hayter Spirit 41. Started a few weeks ago where it would suddenly lose drive. Shut down and restart cured it. Now it won't drive at all. I've had it upside down and taken the 'variator' to bits - all clean and dry and nothing appears broken.
The clutch cable has a spring at the lever end, so as long as the spring extends when the lever gets close to full travel, the clutch should operate. Think I need to double check whether the fault is the variator or the clutch itself.
After a complete strip, turned out the bracket securing the roller drive side bearing had loosened - this had allowed the driving 'dog' to disengage from the slot in the roller. Easy when you know how!
