The first problem was, I lost 2nd gear. It was missing teeth, and I knew it. I thought maybe one , or two. I was fine using it with only 1st, and 3rd. I didn't find much difference between 1st and 2nd anyway.
The next thing was, the shifter seemed to feel different. It would swivel around 360 degrees, making it harder to select a gear. Finally, the she will not get into neutral, and basically stuck into 3rd gear. So in order to keep my lawn mowed, I bought a craftsman, and now am performing open heart surgury on my cub. I took a few photos. Anyone else have a similar experence, who could offer some friendly advice? I'll take any help I can find, because as far as transmissions go, I have no experence, and only a schematic to help me. In the second picture, you can see the shifting forks, and the third, the bad gear at the top.
