I own a Sears Craftsman Model# 917.297040, 850 Series 17" Dual Rotating Tines Rototiller. My Gear shift is extremely hard to shift and has broken the roll pin that connects the shift lever to the transmission shaft twice! I've been told that the transmission is sealed and that you cannot add fluid/grease to it. Is that correct, or can I add fluid/grease to it? And if so, what kind of material do I add, and where does it go? Also, there are 2 yellow [oil?] fill plugs that I'm assuming are used depending on which direction the motor is facing for the various products, and there is also a white filler plug on the side of the engine next to the transmission belt housing that I'm not sure what it's used for but would like to know. I look forward to your response. Thank you.
