SOURCE: My tiller wont go into forward gear. Reverse is

Sounds like a problem in the gearbox if there is no external interference problems with the shift mechanism. It may require opening and inspecting the gearbox.

My tiller wont go into forward gear. Reverse is fine but wont shift at all. I lubed it well and the tiller does not have a lot of use. Any suggestions.

Craftsman rototiller mod. # 917-294260 won't go into gear


try rolling it a bit. Sometimes the gear doesn't fully mesh correctly. As you try to shift push or pull the tiller juuuust a bit back and forth and try to shift as you do that see what happens. Or go into neutral and rock it then try again.

I have a craftsman 19 in dual rotating tines, rear tine tiller. # 917-293493. In mid till, the tines quit turning. Won't shift into any gear. Wheels are locked. Any ideas?????


It is going to be a transmission issue. You can try with the engine off, turning the trans pully by hand in the opposite direction that the motor was turning it.
Some gears in the trans got crossed up and locked.

most likely the shift tube bushings are bad- you may have also lost a few screws in the shift tube or they could just be loose. you have to pull the steernig column down to inspect/repair it.

Tiller tines won't turn where put in gear.


The spring goes in first followed by the ball. The ball should not get in the key way because that is filled by the slider pins that go up into the spur gear that drives the tines. Actually the slider pins drive all of the gears by engaging different gears as the gear collar is moved up and down. The detent spring and ball is the mechanism that is supposed to hold the the clutch collar in place. Mine jumps out of gear when tilling any depth except very shallow. I have reinforced the shifting forks and replaced the pins on the end of it. I believe that the pins wear and the arms spread because i have to keep pressure on the shifting rod or it will jump out of gear when tilling. Even with the reinforcing, pressure on the shifting rod will wear out the pins on the shifting arm. This will be my 3rd reassembly and I am leaning toward the detent spring being weak and allowing the shifting collar to move too easily. I may order an new spring and ball and see if that helps. I am getting pretty good at taking it apart.
