Question about Craftsman Garden
I have acraftman 17'' counter rotating tine 5 hp tiller, model # 917.299710. It runs fine in all other gears but when I try to shift it into gear for it to till it makes a loud grinding noise. And when it does engage it keeps slipping out of gear and I have to engage it into gear again. Therefore when it goes into gear I have to strap a bungee cord around the gear shift and brace it to stay in gear without it slipping out and making the grinding noise.

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
