SOURCE: Yard Machines - Won't shift into gear

The problem most likely is the shaft on which the interlock slides back and forth on inside the transmission. The yardmachines have a continous spinning shaft which ends in a bevel gear. The is an interlock plate which is connected to the Forward Reverse shift lever, this plate slides back and forth and either engages the forward gear or the backward gear. This shaft is most likely galled up, preventing everything from sliding the way it needs to. This is not a difficult thing to fix if you are somewhat mechanical. Disassemble the transmission and check if everything slides

SOURCE: 1999 F250 only goes in reverse, no forward gears.

I believe that reverse is operated by a brake band. So it seems to be stuck. It is operated by a piston, and the seal could have swelled and caused too much friction. But you could loosen up the adjustor so that it is disengaged, in order to get forward gears again. Perhaps you can force the piston to retract as well, once you drop the pan again.

SOURCE: 1997 XK8 Transmission Failure. Will 2001 XK8 transmission work

I had a similar problem with my 1997 XK8. Apparently the transmission will not last much more than 100,000 miles. You need to replace the clutch in the transmission - cost between $2,500 and $4,000.

SOURCE: I purchased a used Yard Machine motor runs won't move

If you take your battery out and slide out the plastic battery tray, you can see the axle. There should be a plastic reservoir conected to the axle. You may be able to refill the reservoir from this access. The axle uses 20WT oil.

I have a 85 trans am 5.0 tpi with a 700r4 trans problem is that the trans will not kick down this a used trans the old one was slipping in gears and had no kick down also and a adj. the t.v cable

Check the cable to make sure it is working properly. Just because it is adjusted correctly does not mean it is functioning properly. Since you commented that the old transmission did the same thing, I think that would be a good place to start. Check to make sure that the cable is holding its adjustment. Other causes of this problem could be :
1. Incorrect fluid level (over filling is bad too)
2. Damaged linkage
3. Damaged internal components
If it turns out to be a problem with the transmission, you might need to try another one. If you got it from a reputable salvage yard they might even work with you. Although it's been awhile, I seem to remember that those transmissions had their share of problems.It is possible to get a bad unit from a salvage yard. It's happened to me. I hope that this information is helpful to you and thanks for using FixYa.

Acts like transmission is slipping but when you turn engine off then turn it on it works for maybe 500 yards

All slipping transmissions do that. The turbine gave up the ghost, and if not repaired soon, the additional strain on the transmission may cause it to fail too. Seemingly turning off the engine allows the trans fluid to cool off a bit, and there is also additional pressure when you restart the engine, giving the transmission the possibilty to work decently for a few yards, but as soon as the fluid overheats again, it starts slipping.

I am needing a slip yoke and transmission tail housing but cannot find them without having to buy complete drive shaft and transmission. I cannot afford these items. Especially when the only parts that...

A reputable shop that rebuilds drive shafts should be able to get you the slip yoke, check the Yellow Pages. If not then your best bet would be to head for the junk yard and get a used drive shaft from them.
You may get lucky at a transmission shop and be able to get a tail shaft housing from a broken transmission but they won't sell one off of any transmission that can be rebuilt. The same will be true at a junk yard.
You can probably order them at the dealer but be prepared to wait to get them. These items aren't going to be on the shelf. They will likely want a deposit to order. You may be furthur ahead to pick up a low mileage tranny from the junk yard. these usually come with a 30 or 60 day warranty. Be sure to drop the pan and change the fluid and filter before you put it in. Hope this helps.

The spin problem is related to the clutch and possibly the transmission. The transmission will leak oil which gets into the clutch causing it to slip. Reach underneath the machine and wipe your hand across the base of the transmission. If there is oil on your hand replace the transmission and clutch..

If you have the topload maytag as listed, It is possible for a transmission to have both symptoms, but it doesn't usually happen as you describe. If something came apart inside the clutch causing the shaft to pull up and keep the brake released, but also allowed the clutch to slip, this is possible.

I would suspect a brake or thrust bearing or both before a transmission. If you are able to turn the basket easily by hand, the brake is not applying for some reason. The thrust bearing will wear down so that it doesn't completely release the brake causing a slow spin. I find these two parts to cause more trouble than transmissions, but I do find bad transmissions occasionaly also.  Post back if you want to know how to check them.
