Is everything normal with the supply of fuel and its combustion inside the engine? Maybe the problem is just from the side of the engine, it cannot develop revs to switch gears. Maybe somewhere some part of the mechanism is moving away and you just need to tighten the nuts? I think you should have a set of keys and sockets on your farm. I have recently ordered a large set of Neiko 02448A 1/2", which has absolutely everything.
