looking on feebay, Joes has a Vickers off of an Ariens version S14, and there appears to be a big black knob in that spot where the release is on this hydro that mine don't have. weird. Don't think it's something bad enuf to require the trans to come out. at least hope not.

That's why I think it might need a bigger o ring on the plunger Don. It might help it stay in once u push on it so them u can freewheel the tractor?

Here is the plunger Don. I had this pic and thought it might help you. If u pull the plunger out, put a rag or something in hole so u don't lose the fluid. That black round cap will unscrew off the metal part. Then I would take that piece to a machine shop and see if they could make a few. I'm sure u could sell the extras and get your money back. Hope this helps.

yeah I didnt see that on this machine, when we looked at it as we loaded it, It was obvious on the pic of the one that Joe's had listed on Feebay,  (when I saw that unit there was only 6 hrs left so its pic may not be available on there anymore)

I cannot believe there isnt some kind of snap ring to retain it within the housing....

with the vibration inherent in a GT plus the occasional rough terrain, I have a tough time believing that they would depend on just that Oring as a retainer....

I remember the original thread and talking to Coinman about this. I really think you either have to deal with it the way you have it now, or split the hydro to fix. I hate to thread rob you, but has anyone figured out an easy way to press the hydro release knob in and move the tractor alone? I have tried and this tends to be a major SOB!!!!

What I remember is it's not for the faint of heart. It can be done but it's a good workout.

well I have another Vickers hydro coming, to swap into this tractor and hopefully nit have the same issue, and I can now yank the original off the machine and try to fix the problem with it the right way.

It doesn't have a retaining clip to my knowledge, I think it has a built in lip on the inside to keep it in. My guess you will need to find a whole other vickers to find a replacement. Or I think you can tear the whole thing down and cut a small impression in the knob and put in a retaining clip

on the inside of what? the release knob? (meaning it drops in from the inside before reassembling the unit)or the transmission case?

I have that one off now and another in its place, so I can experiment somewhere down the road with it.

Ya, I think how that works. It comes from the inside the o-ring keeps the seal but won't fall out

the next battle might be finding parts for it if I do pull it apart.
