Thank you for your question.
I will be happy to assist you. I do not recommend using the lubiplate. The reason is over time it solidifies and will not move in the case very well. If you do not plan to use the original grease, you can use good quality synthetic multipurpose grease. We do not have the specs for how much grease is needed. I recommend putting in enough to fill one-half full. Just be sure to smear grease on all the gears and chain.


I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.


Thank you for using Manage My Life!

Thank you for your question.

I can understand wanting to replace the transmission on your tiller.

Are you going to repair the transmission or do a complete replacement?

It sounds like a complete replacement.

You will need an ordinary set of mechanic tools to remove the attachment bolts.

The transmission has everything attached to it.

You will have to remove the engine and wheels and the tines and the shroud housings and the shifter linkage and the handle assembly.

It is the center of that universe. There are no special instructions other than you will need to remove everything attached to the transmission.

The new one is pre-filled with grease and is ready to install.

Just make sure that you keep the left and right tines and wheels in there correct order.

If you need more help please use the thread and we will be more than happy to help you any way we can.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Thank you for the update on the transmission repair. I am sorry but I know of any manual for this repair. The manufacturer did not provide a shop manual for this transmission. These are notoriously hard shifting transmissions and usually I have to rock the wheels to get it to shift to the next location. I have recently replaced the original that I completely wore out and even the new replacement is hard to shift. If you are trying to shift the transmission on the bench it may not shift for you unless you move the tines shaft and wheel shaft. If you have lubricated the shifting shaft and detent ball then it should work. Sam A.
