Hi folks. I was tracking my Gen2 yesterday and partway through the the third session, I realized I could no longer shift into 2nd or 4th. Pitted and then realized I couldn't engage reverse either.

No issues prior to this and no off-tracks, etc. throughout the day.

My guess is that some part of the linkage disconnected to needs to be checked. During my quick look/see (it was 95 degrees, so it was a real quick look/see) I did not see anything obvious.

Any pointers as to where I should look?


SRF #852 Gen2 (current) - just purchased 4/18 - still getting things sorted

SRF #835 Gen2 (previous) - owned 2002 - 2003

Look for

cracked shift post
lost pin from the links front or rear, or badly worn link - that should not be a sudden change however
cracked or loose motor mounts, anything that can change the position of the engine will effect shifting

those are external problems - internal issue if all those are normal.

good luck
