What should I do?
« on: May 08, 2017, 09:56:52 PM »
Recently picked up an older craftsman (guessing early 90's)
Has a 12.5hp briggs, and a 6 speed. Well I got it running and driving, but it only one gear (I think it's 2nd) the shifter will not shift. I popped the case open today and the grease didn't look that bad, and no water present. But the shifter plate is completely rusted to the case. Ive soaked it in pb blaster and it still will not budge.
What can i do? should I hit it with an impact gun? ha. Getting a new trans is pretty much out of the question as this was free and I don't plan on spending hardly any money on it.

If your not willing to spend anything on it, then just haul it in for scrap and let it give you money.

Get a torch and put a lil heat to it and it should break loose
