Question about Garden
My tiller won't change gears. It's stuck in Forward drive. I can't get it to change to anything. I noticed that it appears my time axle may be slightly bent. The tines are not equally spaced between the tine and the housing. It is off by prob two inches. I think it must have bound the gears or something. Does anyone know anything about these. I know I hit a piece of wood underground while tilling so it must have bent then. It was a little hard to disengage the tiller then. I thought it was fine until I went to use it the next time and it won't go out of drive. Any suggestions on what to do. I don't know if it's worth buying a body. The engine is in awesome shape and runs like a champ.

the tines are usually connected with shear bolts designed to break away when u hit something as a safety precaution so that u dont break anything in the transmission. its common that people dont know this and replace them with normal bolts. if this was done and the tines are not moving now chances are uve got a snapped gear shaft

First check for spark, if you have spark than you can try spraying a little fuel into the carb and try to start it if it starts then dies its the carb

I am not sure either, but I think that it would be alot cheeper to buy a new tiller, than to use your strenght fixing a old tiller that you didn't bother to keep the instructions for (no, I am not trying to be harsh. I am trying to be nice. and I am not sure about it coming with instructions, they usually do.)
Sorry, that is the closest picture that I can get.
Here is a link that may help.

I had this same problem and took the first advice about the shift fork arms being too spread apart. I took apart the gearbox apart and found that the shift fork arms did indeed spread apart overtime and with wear. I'm having a buddy weld some reinforcement to it as long as he can maintain clearance in certain areas as to not disrupt the operation. If it doesn't work then I did find the shift fork assembly part for $50, I just googled the part number, clicked on various sites, and found a better price!

It sounds like the shift shaft or something in the gearbox the shift shaft engages. I know you didn't want to hear this but it is not uncommon. Most operators don't use the clutch bail when starting, stopping, and shifting as they should.
I hate to say it but this may require a trip to your service center for repair.
