Probably can still get them, I may have them in stock.  If you get a model number I can check for certain.

Sounds like maybe the detent is not holding it in gear. 3rd + 4th are on the same shifter fork, use the same detent spring and ball.

I've found broken detent springs, usually on the R - 2nd - 1st shifter fork.

when you take the transaxle apart - check it for the detent spring like DH1 stated

then check the gears for wear before you but any gears

 

when you put the transaxle back together you should get a case gasket

while you have it apart also check the axle seals and o-rings

most if the time I replace the axle seals and o-ring too

Follow Doug's advice. 

 

When you have the model I should have an IPL we can study and see what is missing.

your should replace both springs

 

if the seals are good you do not have to are this time

 

if you do not a manual for the transaxle you can download it from 

GardentratorTalk manual section

there are 2 manuals and a parts list that should help you 

 

http://gardentractor...ission-manuals/

 

Tecumseh Technican's Handbook

Tecumseh/Peerless 2300 Series Parts List

Tecumseh/Peerless 2300 Transmission Repair

 

to make it easier to work on the transaxle - I leave the wheel the side that the case bolts are not on.  I flit the transaxle up on the wheel so that the transaxle is vertical.  that way when you open the case all the gears do not fall out,  they stay in place.  and when you put it back together it is easier.
