Transmission help!!

MY SUPER A WHEN SHIFT IN NETURAL AND LET OFF THE CLUTCH THE TRACTOR SEEMS TO BE IN HIGH GEAR. IF YOU TRY TO SHIFT INTO FIRST OR ANY OTHER GEAR AND LET OFF THE CLUTCH IT SEEMS TO LOAD UP AND WONT MOVE WITH TRACTOR LUGGING AND WANTING TO GO DEAD. IM UNDER THE IMPRESSION THAT THE SHIFTER FORK MAYBE BE STUCK. AM I GOING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION OR DOES IT SOUND A WHOLE LOT WORSE? THANKS

Never had a super A tranny apart, but it sounds as if the shifter may be worn and has slipped out of the 4th gear frok leaving it engaged, or it may be the fork has come loose or broken. You will have to pull the top off the transmission to check it and get it lined back up.

Yup, classic "stuck in two gears at once" problem.

Nice thing about a Super A is you can actually rock the tractor back and forth without busting a gut to get the shift rails lined back up.

You need to take the top off to see WHY the problem is so you can fix it right.---sounds like the rails and forks need some serious attention! thanks; sonny

No, you still have to take the cover off.

I am saying that the tractor is light and easy to rock. If the forks don't slide right back into place easily, the gears are bound up a little. Rocking the tractor back and forth a little bit while prying will make them slide back into place easier.

It's the easiest way, and really the only way, to fix the immediate problem.

Just stating fact here, not tying to be condescending, but you've spent days worrying about a problem that will take you about 15 minutes to resolve.
