sportomatic, 1973 S, stuck in first/reverse when stopped


Vehicle Information: Model: 911 S with sportomatic; Year: 1973; Body Type: Coupe; Engine (type, size, modifications): 2.4 liter S, stock with MFI; Total Mileage: 55,000;

I can not get the sportomatic out of either first or reverse with the engine running and the car stopped. When doing a back and forth maneuver in the drive way, the only way to get the sportomatic out of first or reverse is to stop the engine, put the car in neutral, start the engine, select a gear and proceed. The problem happens right out of the garage or following a long trip so I am not sure that vacuum accumulation is an issue. On the road, the vacuum clutch works well and shifting is not an issue. This is a 73 S with roughly 55,000 miles. Thanks.John Meyer, Cincinnati
