Question about Craftsman Rear Mount Tiller

1 Answer

As I shift out of any gear into neutral and then back into any gear the transmission grinds, as if it never went to neutral. The flywheel on the transmission end keeps turning even when in neutral, although the belt has released. My Tiller is a Craftsman 4hp 14'' Model #917.299643

My 2000 Chevy silverado 1500 z71 wont move. used 4wd then tried to put back into 2wd it would shift into any gear. Put back in park it makes a grinding noise


Sounds like your transfer case in neutral. You have to engage the transfer case back into gear then shift selector to drive or reverse. When your transfer is in neutral the transmission will not operate. Good luck.

Your clutch has failed. Big job...transmission needs to be removed. The over-reving you felt was the friction material on the clutch disc not gripping the flywheel.

2002 celica GTS Transmission makes noise when shifting souns like gears grind although clutch is pressed all the way down. Do not see where to check tranny fluid. I replacing the clutch difficult on this...


There may be several reasons for this. 1st, low transmission fluid levels can cause the gears to grind while shifting due to lack of lubrication. I would suggest checking the fluid level, there is a plug located on the side, in about the middle of the transmission which when removed should slowly seep oil from it. If it doesn't then you will need to add the recommended transmission fluid.
2nd, a maladjusted clutch can cause the same problem. Even though you have the clutch pedal to the floor, the clutch pressure plate may not be completely disengaging from the flywheel. This will cause pressure on the gears and synchronizers while trying to shift. I suggest having the clutch adjusted by a mechanic if you have never performed this function yourself. An inproper adjustment can severely shorten the life of the clutch.
The 3rd option may be a warn clutch component like the slave cylinder if equipped, the throwout bearing or even the pressure plate itself.
A visual inspection can be made of the clutch by removing the inspection plate from the bottom of the bell housing to view the flywheel and clutch. With someone depressing the clutch you should be able to see the clutch moving off the flywheel.

Rattling / grinding sound coming from engine area when vehicle is in gear and car break is applied, but when gear is set into neutral noise stops. Was told the problem was the aircondition compressor....


Just a couple ideas...
Your engine and transmission will shift slightly when in drive, and maybe that movement is allowing it to rub on something. Another issue may be that the noise is actually from the transmission.
Torn motor mounts will allow the drive train to shift or move farther than normal.

My son has a 77 ford f150 will not go into gear


It sounds like the pressure plate is not disengaging the clutch completly, if at all. If it makes a grinding
noise when you step on the clutch,( without moving
the shifter from neutral) you most likly have bad
throwout bearing or pressure plate or both. If no
noise try adjusting the clutch. Under the truck, on the
left side there is a 3/8" rod from the clutch pivot assy.
to the clutch fork. Remove the return spring and turn
the rod toword the fork until the bearing touchs the
the plate replace the spring and back the rod off
1 +1/2 turns. While your under ther remove the inspection plate and check for shrapnal, also have
somone step on the clutch and see if everything is
moving.(eng. is off while doing all this. had to say it)
Start the truck and give it a try, if no improvment
you need a clutch job.
One more thing, with the truck on level surface and
the engine off, block the wheel and shift through the
gears, if it shifts easily ok. This was to eliminata
bent or broken shift forks in the transmission cover.
Hope this helps. Good luck.
