it's a pretty easy job to inspect the transmission internals.  Remove the seat, fender, and tool box.  Then the top cover of the transmission comes right off by removing several bolts and lifting it up and off.  As mentioned, it may be something very easy to fix - roll pin sheared in shifter, shifter or shifter gear broken, etc.  Maybe drain the gear oil and remove the bottom cover to see what pieces/parts settled to the bottom.  After assessing the damage, then make the decision about repairing or replacing with a used transaxle.  Good luck.

Thanks I will do that first. Does the cab and blower significantly raise value. Trying to figure out value. Not that I'm an even - bay flipper. I like this because it is cool. But my rule for vintage stuff sleds, wheelers etc... is that once I get them back to a certain level I wanna be able to break even if I ever have to sell.

Nice find and hope you get it running well. Snowblower for tubeframes seem to be a common item. Cabs are a little harder to find. But, that's over here on the east coast. Wheel weights you can find easily. Chains are common, too.

If you can snag it for $200 (in my opinion) you'll do okay with adding cost for another trans.

As for getting back your money IF you sell it after fixing it, that'll depend on time, current market demands, etc. Some guys don't consider what use they got out of it and feel they should get top dollar for something that they can't say will last another 50 hrs. of run time. Best to just enjoy it while you have it.

Best way to say it is "Use the tools, not the people."

Good luck.

$200 would be a steal in my opinion just for the cab and the snowblower. I know it varies depending on location but the cab alone should be worth $200 by itself, and as time goes on it will only gain in value. I don't wanna get into "what it's worth" because that is personal opinion, but I would personally pay more than that because of the cab and snowblower. The G14 was produced from '72 to '78, so there are plenty of them out there sitting in fields with bad motors and good transaxles. The 1254 I believe has the same transaxle. It seems like you should be able to find one with a little searching and patience. Good luck, hope to see pictures of it after you pick her up.

G14 was made 1973-1978

 

 

Any 6 speed transmission will adapt

Sorry, 1254 was produced in '72. Regardless, many of them out there.

The G14 Should have a Tecumseh HH140 (14HP) Engine

There are some people that take these to shows/Parades

 

They are built like mini tanks and will push/pull just about anything you would want them to do (Just don't try moving a house with them :D)

Got it home and got it started after tearing apart starter had a brush that was hanging up. Engine runs great. Got it to shift through Al gears put it back together to load it back on trailer at buddies house with heated shop and couldn't get it in neutral I'm sure with more fiddling I will get it working correctly. This thing is cool and should be nice moving snow under shelter of cab. Snowblower works. Wow mower deck is heavy duty. Wind was blowing 40 plus snowing, basically have blizzard going on and forgot where I left deck well remembered on way home. I dragged it underneath trailer for 6 blocks. God what a bone head move! But to my surprise no visible damage.
After I got it load after purchase the guy handed me original owners manuals for tractor and blower along with the dealer prep instructions!
