Since you have a 71 Elky, it's probably not the transmission. You don't have a lock-up converter unless you've converted her to a later transmission model with lock-up. Let us know more details about what motor and trans you have. :beer:

Fire it up - hold the brake and start giving it throttle. See if you can make it do it just sitting still. I'm thinking a bad motor mount and something either touching or a broken wire.
