it might be a piece of metal to release the trans so the tractor can be moved !!! ???? I've seen the metal parts somewhere but not sure how they are to be attached to the lever. Still working on the 1650 while I wait for the parts to come in. I now use a had cart with a pin in the trailer hitch on it to move it around. Have any of you guys rebuilt the release lever and if so how have you done it? If I have to buy the new one do any of you know if it has to be welded on or does it use the roll / split pin that is already there? Thanks. Roger

Yours is snapped off.The roll pin holds it in place.It's a Thin piece of spring steel and they are pretty brittle and often snap off over time.

 

Pull the roll pin and you will be able to pull the broken part out of the slot.

 

Here's a pic of what it should look like.

Might want to replace that Flex coupler on the driveshaft before you run it very long.That thing looks really nasty.Ya don't want the driveshaft to run off centered it will bend and really mess stuff up when it lets go.It will eat those Hydro lines for lunch.

I agree with Eric, you definitely want to replace that flex coupler as soon as possible.  If it comes loose it can cause major damage to your hydro lines.

 

I have two cub cadets with the same release mechanism and mine had rusted so bad that they broke.  There is currently one on ebay and you can get it for $30 plus shipping.  I think that's an obscene price but I'm cheap.  I was able to make my own out of regular sheet steel and so far they are holding up well.  Good luck.

Thanks guys. If I had the dimensions I could make one out of 22ga steel.(galvanized) I don't see the part lying in the bottom so I assume it was long gone before I got the tractor. I also do not see the metal part for the neutral safety switch either. That's why that is jumped out. Still waiting for the PTO switch so I can get it running again so I can see if it is worth putting a lot more money into. Kinda doing this on a shoe string budget.  Thanks again.                                          Roger

Have had 1250 with same part missing. The push valves there were stuck on mine. Yours look rough,, but still sticking up, mine pushed down and stayed! I just removed with socket and cleaned them up in thinner and worked the spring and button up/down many times till they worked and put back in. Watch you keep o-rings on them. Mine worked OK after that. I would think that metal one shown would be good buy, probly spring steel too, not just straight. Need a tension to keep the lever up and pushing on those buttons, they go pretty stiff, no weak springs there.

hmmm...interesting.  I had a more recent thread on disengaging hydro on my 1250;  and recently picked up a 129 too. 

I have not had a chance to do much of anything with either machine yet. been swamped with other (non GT) things.

The 1250 has the hole in the tunnel cover for the lever but don't have a lever.  The 129 came to me with the tunnel cover removed.

The PO said something about something being broke that breaks on these machines "all the time" I thought that he meant the hydro release plungers.  Now I stumbled onto this pic, I see that the tab on my 129 is much shorter!!  so maybe it's just the tab and not the release plungers.... time to pull the tunnel cover on the 1250 too.
