Hi all I just found this site a few weeks back. I know I havent posted anything yet but just wanted to say hi and introduce my self. They call me stubbysteve cause I dont have any legs. I lost them in 2005 when a ford ranger fell on me and I was pinned for over 8 hrs.

 

Any way I picked up a D4-10 just a few days ago. It has the WISCONSIN engine in it. The rear wheels turn when you pull in and makes the engine turn as well. the tranny is stuck in the lowest/ farthest down gear. I believe that may be reverse. I say that cause I cant tell what is suposed to be what on the tranny/shifter plate.

 

I dont know if the rearend is messed up or if the clutch inside the bell housing is messed up. I would think I could still put it in neutral even if the clutch was messed up. So if anyone has any idea let me know please.

 

Also will be putting up pics as soon as I can take them. thanks.

Hey Steve, :welcome: to GTTalk
There are lots of BH nuts on here, and at least a few of them have been inside those trannys.
Hopefully one of them comes along and can answer your Question.

Welcome aboard Steve. Sorry to hear about the injury!
I'm not much of a bush hog guy, but someone will be along soon.
Enjoy the site, there are a great bunch of guys here. Good luck with your tractor. What are your plans for it? Yes the pics when you get a chance will be very helpful. Tom

Welcome Steve. The BH tractors have really been gaining traction lately as collectors items. There are some very knowledgable folks on here who should be able to help sort out those transmission problems.

Welcome to the forum Steve! Glad to add another owner to the Bush Hog owners club! First thing I would do is pull the shifter off the top of the transaxle and inspect the cluster gear- it should move up and down the shaft.image.jpg this is what the cluster gear looks like. You can see a damaged one and then a good one in this picture. The other common problem is a busted ring gear. I would look at these two areas first. image.jpg

We will help you figure it out. Pictures always help, so post some when you can.

Welcome Steve!  If the gear shift lever is all the way down, then it's in first gear.  Reverse is all the way up, shifter closest to the seat.

If the shift lever is stuck & won't move, you'll likely find a lot of rust which has the shift fork frozen to the pin it rides on, or the sliding cluster gear is rusted to the shaft, preventing it's sliding.  Just pull the top shift cover off and you'll likely see your problems right off.  Post up some pics asap!  

  Sorry to hear of your accident, but sounds like you have a good perspective on life.  Legs aren't required to be a member, heck, some of us have no brains, but they still let us in here!

I am looking through the manuals to see if I can find what might be stuck. Sacsr thanks for the pics so I can see what it is and how it is set up in the rearend.

Does the shifter move up and down? Like Daniel , if it does not, I would check to see that the yoke that is over the cluster gear is not stuck (rusted). It tends to be a little hard to move by hand but it should slide back and forth on the shaft.
