I have an older model BCS tiller (from the 70's) and I lost all my gears forward and reverse over the weekend. I know what the problem is, it's the little roll pins that hold the shifter fork in place. This is by design as per my brother who used to be a BCS tiller. I need to find these roll pins and apparently they are metric. Does anybody know what size these pins are? Thanks.

I have had that happen to my BCS also.  could not locate the right pin so drilled the holes out to use US Standard size.  That way when/if it happens again I will have the pin to replace it.

 

I re-motored mine with a B&S 9 hp with the BCS adapter and dry clutch.  Works a lot better but need to lock the clutch out in cold weather to start it.
