Something to check. Tilt the handle up and make sure teeth are lining up correct. Had this happen on occasion on a J15. Also do yourself a favor and read all you ever wanted to know about those older motors. Quote from his webpages "Now there seems to be one MAJOR problem with these models, and that is that the twist grip is not really designed to be operated in any other position above a 35 degree angle. If you tip it up farther and twist the throttle, you can experience these teeth to jump out of mesh 1 or 2 gear teeth without knowing what you just did. When in this condition, it will usually run, but at about only up to 1/2 throttle. It will not rev up to maximum speed as this flat will not allow complete shaft throttle movement."
