Having problems directly after a "pretty good burnout" is usually an indicator of the governor spring being flung out. They are available from TCI through summit etc. pull the pan and then the governor cover/governor and insert spring and reassemble. If you need more detailed guidance just post here

Most likely the governor spring came out. Pull governor and check, sometimes you get lucky and spring didn't get destroyed. If it is not pinned to prevent this problem I can pin it for you and supply correct spring if needed. Contact me @ 516-285-1103

It was the governor spring it was pinned but incorrectly so it kicked out sideways. Thanks so much for the replies and especially to David Husek for taking his time to talk things over on the phone. Great guy with awesome customer service!
