    I checked with our technical service department and they suggested that you check to ensure that the reversing cap is tight as this may make the throw out spring feel weak. There is a new style spring and pawl for the 458R and it is sold in a set (cat# 83257. For more information on this I would suggest contacting our technical service department at 800-519-3456 or by email through the link provided in this web site. I hope this is of some assistance.
