I had one way back. There was some side slack in the swivel and I could pull it to the side in low range and jam it aginst the frame and hang it up in low drive and realy wind it out, and keep up neck and neck with a Honda cub 50Wayne Z

I'm guessing there must be a somewhat heavy flywheel under the big round cover on the right side?
