Re: Clutch/starting question

although I distinctly recall reinstalling all 3 wires, I'd still place my bet on human error before mechanical failure.

Re: Spindle "stretch"/wear? Any insights?

for anyone interested:

I called back, and the mechanic was using spindle and knuckle interchangeably, not spindle and hub. That's why the price was so outrageously high.
