MTD Mastercraft rear tine tiller transmission problem

I bought this tiller used and the guy installed a new shift fork and when he had it all back together it would'nt move. I got it home and tore it down and he had a few gears and spacers out of place, i got it back together and it will move forward and reverse and the tines turn, but as soon as i put some resistance to the wheels (like pull back on the handle bars when its moving forward) it stops and it sounds like a base ball card against the spokes of a bike inside the the transmission.

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.

You will have to get into the gearbox. It isn't too hard but is time consuming. Sounds like the drive for the tiller has broken. Could just be the chain in the gearbox for the tiller drive.

It is the shift fork in the transmission. Bad part design and if you plan to take it apart, use sandpaper and really clean the wheel axle and tine axle before you take it apart.

Sounds like a bent shift fork or two. Replacing the bad shift forks is major surgery and is NOT recommended for the inexperienced mechanic. Several special tools are needed. The top end and gearbox get totally torn down just to get to the shift forks. This is a very expensive repair, guessing $2100 or so at the dealers. Bummer. Contact a few dealers to cofirm my view of the problem and the probable repair cost. The shift forks move left and right as the shift drum is rotated when you lift or push down on the shift pedal.

MTD Series 410 rear tine tiller. Tines won't engage.


I had the same problem. After splitting the case, I found that the shifting fork was bent and the pins that move the shift collar were worn. I made new pins for and reinforced the shifting fork, put it back together and if worked for a few minutes until it would jump out of gear while tilling. I would try to hold the external shifting rod down so that it would not jump out of gear but eventually it quit working completely. I tore it down again and the pins were already work out. I ordered a new detent ball and spring for less than $10 including shipping. This seems to have cured the problem. Apparently the detent spring was weak which allowed the shifting collar to disengage from the drive gear when under load. The original spring had been replaced with a new part number so it may have been made stronger. Tearing one apart is not easy but is certainly doable. To make it easier, put the nuts back on the bolts from where they came. Also get the parts manual picture to help with reassembly. Be careful with the case gasket. It costs a ton for a new one but since the grease is so thick, you could probably silicone it back together if you destroy the gasket.

Have a rototiller it moves OK but the tines do not turn It is a mtd yard machine rear tine


Seems to be a fairly common problem with these units. If the big pulley is turning which I assume it is as the drive wheels work, it is most likely a problem in the gear box. The shift mechanism in these units leave a lot to be desired. You can try to repair it your self or take it to a service center. Labor will be high due to the amount of time required to separate the engine and transmission.
