Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having problems with the new transmission on the tiller. There is not any kind of adjustment in the shifter. I recommend removing the hairpin in the shifting rod and disconnect the shifter from the transmission. Then see if you can manually shift the transmission in to forward tilling. If it does, the problem is most likely a bent shifter rod. If the transmission will not shift into gear, the problem is a defective transmission.

I hope this is helpful.

Please let me know if you have questions, I will be happy to answer them.

Thank you for using Manage my life.

Thank you for choosing SearsPartsDirect.com. I will be more than happy to assist you. I can understand any frustration you may have experienced with regards to your unit. Let’s see what we can do for you.

I’m showing with this tiller, you would need to break the transmission in half to get to the bearings on that input shaft. I also would recommend replacing the other bearing on the end as well.
