Just write down your help so others can read it in the future as well.

That's right!!

But if JJBinks sent him what I think he sent, it would be that the clutch spring has broken and is engaging the clutch on idle.

I understand how to use/ the purpose a forum however I didnt think this user would like to share their personal phone number with the public. so I sent him a pm and offered to call them to help out as that would be easier in this case to explain. It would be much easier for me to help by talking to them.

Hence the point of PM's

Thanks

If I tell them something specific that is easy to understand in a written form I will post it.

If that were the case when you set the car on the ground and stopped it with your foot or the brakes it would shut off immediately since the clutch would be engaged.

However I sent a pm for this users phone number to call and help.

It is more of an idle screw problem, the inching forward. and also needed some tuning issues resolved.
