Question and Answers

Q:

Engine swap? SV7350016 Kohler Engine

Q:

mower won't go into reverse

A:

does it go in forward ? you may want to check the linkage for the trans and make sure that when you move the shifter into reverse that the shifter is moving the trans into reverse and not just slipping without moving the trans lever into reverse. those trans have a push nut holding the shifter linkage on and are known to come off letting the shifter travel freely. if you look under the right rear fender above the tire you will see the shifter linkage and rod going to the trans. the rod from the trans will be on a stud on the end of the shifter and a small push nut holding it on if it's there.

Hi,

Thanks for contacting ManageMyLife. I understand how frustrating it is having trouble with your appliance not working.

The bell crank under the tractor igets crud and old grass on it and it seizes up and sometimes causes problems. The other is the shift link on the transmission gets loose and needs to be adjusted and sprayed with wd40.  TC covered most of the problems.

Please feel free to let me know if you need further assistance. We are always here to help.

Thank you for using ManageMyLife.com.

SAME ISSUE. MY GT6000 GOES INTO ALL FORWARD DRIVE GEARS, BUT WONT GO INTO REVERSE. I CHECKED LINKAGE UNDERNEATH AND ALL SEEMS TO BE WORKING. HOWEVER, WHEN I TRY TO SHIFT INTO REVERSE THE SHIFTER FEELS STIFF AND THERE ISNT THAT SATISFYING FEEL OF IS GOING INTO A GEAR LIKE IT DOES IN THE FORWARD GEARS. WHEN THE UNIT STOPPED GOING INTO GEAR, I WAS USING A BACK BLADE TO LEVEL SOME GROUND. I WAS USING THE REVERSE GEAR QUITE EXTENSIVELY AND THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN.......NADA. HAD A SEARS MECH OVER TO FIX SOMETHING ELSE ON IT AND HE SAID THAT I MIGHT BE THE REVERSE GEARS WERE STRIPPED. THOUGHTS? MOWING EVERYTHING WITHOUT THE REVERSE GEAR CAN BE FRUSTRATING AT TIMES/
