WE261 goes well in forward but really slow or not at all in reverse. When in neutral the friction wheel is positioned in the center of the friction disk and there is a gap between them. When placed in 1st, the wheel moves to the left and makes contact with the disk. When placed in reverse the wheel moves to the right of center but there is a gap between the wheel and disk and it doesn't make contact. I don't see any up and down movement in the shaft to make me think the bearings are bad but why would it be farther from the disk un one side and not the other?
