I got a 1220 that the hi/low won't move. I am going to dig in if it ever stops raining out. I am thinking of pulling off the fender and transaxle cover to see what may be binding this up. The rest of the tractor is all original and complete. Ever hear of a stuck hi/low shifter on these gear driven tractors? I would like to see how well it runs. It came with a ton of stuff.....

It possibly could just be frozen in place. I'd take off the fender and transmission plate and see what the inside looks like, most of the time they free right up.
Goodluck, and we want pictures LOL:bounce:

The other thing I noticed when I had the cover off dad's 1053 is that if the cover isn't put on with the lever for the hi/low just right the lever will bind. I think it will either be that or like Brian said may just need a little lube and get freed up from lack of use.

Thanks for the input guys. I plan on getting the tranny plate off for a closer look. I have not taken any pictures yet but hope to soon. I bought this to steal a few parts from but if I get it running I may just sell it since it is so complete and put the money towards my G14 refurbish.

More than likely it also has a detent to hold shift shaft in place. If not simply frozen up, look for a bolt head in-line/over the shaft. Usually a hollow bolt with spring & detent plunger. This could be sticking it also.

Thanks for that tip. You guys really have me thinking/hoping that this is a simple fix.... I hope to have a look over the weekend in-between working on the G14.

If you find out it isn't something simple let us know what it is and I might be able to get you the part because we have two extra transmissions that we can rob parts from.
