Thanks again for your advice

You should have had some warnings though. Like moving off slowly then has speed increases the drive stops, a bit like a slipping clutch. If you pull the freewheel lever out and drive is restored, then you still need to replace the hub assembly as the freewheel selector sleeve is made of brass and is not strong enough to take engine torque.
