So Adam, how was neutral finding when you got it off the center stand? ;)

Well @gggGary & @GLJ I still have the new clutch plate assembly and one piece push rod. They are not yet installed due to pressure of closing down my business and starting a new employment roll. Since doing the mod to the worm gear, changes have improved. Finding neutral is still a hit and miss affair Taffy is running well now and I will live with the neutral issue for now. I will install the clutch kit and new one piece rod this year when time allows; and look forward to improved riding / gearbox performance.
Oh and Taffy has not got a centre stand. 🤔
