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 lt 1000 riding lawn mower and it runs, but it won't go into gear it goes into gear, but clutch won' engage the gear.


Look under the mower to see if the drive belt has come off or broke. It is the belt that runs from the bottom of the engine to the rear axle.

Sears rototiller wheels locked up engine runs great


After taking the transmission/frame apart, the drive chain for the tires broke and wedged in the case. I cleaned the rest of the gear box and washed all of the gears and sprockets. Ordered up the chain, gasket and grease. I re-installed and greased all of the pieces and reassembled the case. I used a marine wheel bearing grease for the water resistant properties. I installed a zerk fitting right over the shifting lever. This should help keep the grease on the top end of all the gears. After a few hours it is good to go and works just like new.

My Sears rototiller model 917293310 is in neutral. It won't shift into any other gear. It starts just fine.


It could be the fork shifter of bracket inside that broke. Check her to get better idea and for parts

Sounds like you are speaking of the float bowl.
It should not have a hole in it.
You could purchase the part from Sears or a small engine shop.
If it were mine, I'd remove the bowl, clean it, and patch with a gasoline impervious material such as JB weld.
