Thank you Klaus. It turned out that I had too much lube on 185. After removing what was there and then reapplying a tiny amount, the force of 184 was no longer being hindered and 185 engaged fully with 189. Consequently, moving the selector to "Stop" does just that!

I need to keep repeating that mantra about less being more with lube...

I hope that in the time since this thread started, dbxdx5 solved this problem. If not, perhaps my experience will help. I, too, couldn't seem to solve this issue until I fully removed the whole system of pieces involved, including parts 189, 187, and 185. After removing all old grease and reapplying just a very thin layer of lithium grease on those parts that need it, I finally got it working. If I had to say what was the most significant reason for the problem, it was likely some old grease at the end of part 187 that slides in a groove in the chassis at the corner behind the motor. The grease was not visible until the part was removed.
