Hi everyone. Has anyone rebuilt the transmission on their WH? I am considering doing mine but wanted some sage advice if anyone has been through this yet. Mine is locked up and the shifter just flops around. Hopefully parts are still available.

 

Thanks,

Bill

It is possible that the shifter came out of the shifting forks and the forks are not lined up properly causing the "locked-up" condition.

There should be a lock nut on a square headed bolt. This holds the shifter in place. Remove the square headed bolt, remove the shifter and re-align the shift forks (to neutral) and insert the shifter back into the forks.

A rebuild may not be necessary!

Man, I sure hope that is the case. I just assumed the worst. My girlfriend was mowing when it happened and said she was just trying to shift from foreward to reverse when it quit. I figured a gear broke off or something since the wheels will not turn. Crossing the fingers. I do need to brag on her a bit here. While mowing earlier, the pto belt gave it up and shredded and she took it in the face and chest like a trooper. Would have scared the wits out of me....lol.
