13286Re: Transmission problem
- Jun 1, 2008When this happened on my 154 it was caused by the splines getting
worn on the drive shaft, this caused it to break out the center of
the clutch disc. I had a machine shop take off 5/8 in. of the end of
the drive shaft and turn a new pilot end on the shaft. After doing
this the shaft was split in the center and lengthened by the same
amount, so the finished length was the same as the original. This was
accomplished with a sleeve over the shaft. The unworn splines then
engage the clutch disc, solving the problem. The altenative is to buy
a new shaft which is pricy! Mine kept breaking out the clutch centers
until I did the above. Harold
