Well, I have finally sorted out all the wiring issues on the cab and topped off my trans oil. HOWEVER, the tracter goes nowhere in "hi" gear? It goes forward and back just fine in "low", just not when "hi"gear is engaged. I have checked to make sure it isnt in neutral, as it wont roll when trying to push it, the trans is defenitely engaged... Any ides?

Wish I could help but I'm not familiar with Snappers. One suggestion is my Craftsman has a Hi & Low and I know that when I move it from low to hi sometimes it doesn't quite go in and I have to work it a bit using the clutch,

Some of the snappers have a mechanical stop/plunger that prevents the shifter from moving between hi and low. If yours has this, there should be a cable that connects the brake peddle to the plunger on the stop. The peddle must be pushed all the way down and then shift the hi/lo shifter. If the cable is broken, pushing the peddle will not pull the plunger out of the way
