Has anybody ever experienced the tranny being stuck in 1st gear?! Was running just fine,mucking out the wife's cow pen, went to throw it in reverse and found that is stuck in 1st gear! The shift lever acts like you can waggle it to and fro as if if you are in neutral but when you let out the clutch, it is still in gear. It will go into the reverse position but when you let out the clutch the engine wants to die because it is in a bind. I removed the tranny cover to take a peek and it looks as if the shifting collar is stuck on the gears(I can't get it to move)I am a little leary about trying to force it with a bar. Anybody have any suggestions?? Chris

I had the same problem and was able to pop the shifter cover off pry the shift rails back to neutral. I eventually figured that for some reason the shift rail was traveling too far because the detent was not catching. I pulled the little spring and ball out, cleaned the gunk out of the hole and off the ball and replaced the spring. My local hardware store matched up the spring. I actually put a little longer spring in to help push the ball into the shift rail detent a little harder. I have not had the problem for probably close to a year now. I know there may be more to this problem but so far this solution has worked for me.

Hope this helps some.

The same thing happened to me on my older 8N and I popped it loose with a bar and it had been ok ever since.
