I had the same issue when I first got my 165. The rear spring was missing, but I didn't know it needed one. Finally got that spring, then fiddled a bit to get it to even out in neutral. Works good now.

Joe, look at the springs that are attached the big heavy one has a funky bent attachment point. This is where you adjust for neutral. Just loosen slightly and turn it ever so general one way or the other until it stays still and can be shifted easily. This will be located inside the frame next to where the pedal pivots.

Did the adjustment today. Quick and easy. No more roll back!
