Why does speed control lever return to neutral when going forward ?


this model uses a series of groves cut into mower body to maintain the transmission gear/direction , it's held into groves by a spring just under the cover , if this is broken a replacement can be gotten from sears (part# 164X39) to replace it , it should take at least five pounds of force to move shift lever out of grove to next gear , if not then your shift spring is loose or broken

Throttle binds up and kicks back under flywheel


this is the govenor and its not complicated but somewhere along the line its come adrift with advance unit which is under the flywheel as well ,have another look and you will see what i mean take the flywheel off and give it a good inspection and you will kick yourself as its so simple but if your not sure and do it wrong then it jumps off when you open the throttle

If it's a hydrostatic, most likey you pulled the manual over-ride (only way to move the tractor manually). By leaving the over-ride level in the disengaged position, the tractor will start & run, but not move forwards or backwards. Correct by closing the the lever to it's closed (operational) position.

I had to take off the rear weel of my falcon apache mountain bike to get it in my car o travel from my grandparens home to mine but i cant get the back weel gear arm back on. how do i do this??


By the "gear arm" I assume you mean that part of the rear derailer that the chain zig-zags through. This arm moves in two ways. It moves in and out (toward the wheel and away) as you move the shift lever - which is how it changes gears, by moving the chain onto different sprockets (gears). It also moves forward and back (toward the front and back of the bike) under spring pressure. This forward and back motion is necessary to take up the slack in the chain when you are using the smaller sprockets (the smaller the sprocket, the "higher" the gear). When the wheel has been removed, this arm moves forward (under spring pressure) as far as it can to take up all of the slack in the chain. All you have to do is grasp this lever and pull it toward the back of the bike, allowing the lever and the chain to pass behind the sprockets (gears) as you pull the wheel back into it's position. You can safely pull this arm forward and back at any time without doing any damage. One more tip-- I find it a little easier if you first put the shift lever in a "middle" gear position. Then when you pull the wheel into place, you should aim to put the chain on a middle sprocket. You don't have to hit the exact correct sprocket as you can simply lift the rear wheel and turn the pedals forward (after installing the wheel) and the chain will move to the correct sprocket corresponding to the setting on the shift lever.

When the car is started and then shifted into drive you can feel it engage. It will move forward and even seems to shift properly until the transmission warms up. Once it warms up and you stop it will not...


This sounds like a valve body spool is hhanging up. It's that block you see bolted to the belly inside the trans. Check the vacuum modulator vacuum hose for vacuum or leakage.

Tiller will go into every gear except forward/till..whats going on?


check the shift lever where it goes into the transmission. a lot of times, the lever will get sloppy where the roll pin goes through and it won't shift into till. sometimes you can drive the roll pin out, pull off the lever and peen the holes over. sometimes you have to drill the lever and shaft and put in a snug fitting bolt and nut. OR, the chain driving the tines is broken, and that means a new transmission. hope it's simple

1999 ram auto trans wont shift into park


you could need a throttle linkage adjustment. first check to see if your ram will start in "park" and "neutral" only. if it starts in any other gear=faulty neutral safety switch. replace. ok, now check linkage for proper adjustment...with engine off and in park...remove intake housing..disconnect cableend from attatchment stud on your throttle body..slide cable off the stud (carefully)..verify that the transmissionthrottle lever is fully forward (idle) position..and verify that the lever on the throttle body is at curb idle pos..insert small screwdriver under edge of the retaining clip and remove..center the cable end on attatchment stud to within 0.04", or 1mm. install retaining clip onto cable housing..check cable adjustment..be sure trans throttle lever and throttlr body lever move in sync with each other.
