Chaulkhead, not sure of the year, but the "stuck in gear" sounds like the one way bearing on the primary...especially when it shifts freely with the engine not running. Pull the primary and clean out the bearing. Don't use grease because it will hold belt dust and grit. Clean it out and l finished with brake cleaner. Put the clutch back on, and with the cover off, crank it and see if it idles without spinning the belt. If it works correctly, I think the one way bearing is about $80. I reused the original and is still working correctly, but haven't put that many miles on it. Let us know what happens. Good luck!
