Due to the age of the mower, the original manual is no longer available. However, I found a manual on our site that should work for your model. I provided a direct link below. Owner's Manual

The parts list diagram can be found at our sister site www.SearsPartsDirect.com . I hope this helps.

Thank you for your question.  I am sorry you are having a problem with the tractor. If the shifter will move side to side but does not shift the gears, I suspect the shift pin on the shift fork is broken. I posted an image below showing where the pin is located. In order to access the pin the transaxle needs to be removed and disassembled. If you attempt this repair, I recommend taking pictures along the way. You will be able to look back at the images if you need to. Once you have the transaxle removed, take out all the bolts securing the two halves together. Then carefully remove the top half. You want the parts to stay in the bottom half because if the gears come out it is difficult to get them back in the correct place. Once you have the top half off you can remove the old shift fork and install the new one. Then apply a bead of silicone sealer to one-half of the case and reassemble the transaxle. Once assembled check the shifting to be sure it operates. If everything seems ok, go ahead and reinstall the transaxle in the tractor. If you need to order the shift fork, you can do so from the following link. New shift fork for transaxle model number 143.920043.  I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance. Thank you for using Manage my life. Mark.

Thanks Mark... I do appreciate the response. The picture you mentioned... I didn't find it attached to the response. That would really be helpful. I did see the link for buying a "shift fork" but no picture. Thanks for your effort!

Good evening Mark. Yes... I was able to see the image at the link you provided. VERY Much appreciated. Now... I'm going to spend a little time figuring out how to disassemble the rascal before charging in and burning a hole in myself. Thank you for your help!
