Power Throw 824xl jumps gears

My Power Throw 824xl is jumping forward gears. When I put it in 1st gear it will run about 5 feet then jump to 2nd gear all by itself. Another 20 feet or so and it will jump to 3rd. It doesn’t seem to jump beyond that.

Any ideas?

Is your friction wheel clean did you get oil or grease or dirt on it.
Did you recently lube jackshaft and not cover friction Wheel/Drive Disc or gears near Friction wheel/Drive disc????


Are you saying the shifter moves or just by the speed you notice?????

The shifter is jumping the gates and causing the friction disc to move to higher gears.

I have not dropped the bottom pan since this has started happening.
