I was peddling when peddle pressure dropped in half and I slowed down. I pulled the drive a found that one fin was coming lose from the drive. The post(rod) with notches was coming out. I pushed it back in. It seemed fixed but after a few minutes it came out again. Anyone have any suggestions? :shock: :shock: :oops:
