Kurt Braun I have a Super 55 Diesel with a locked up transmission. could you give me some idea on what to do? I think it is between gears. The shift stick will not move and when I let the clutch out the engine dies.Thanks

Well, if the transmission is similar to the Super 99 I ran for many years on a snowblower, what happened is the stick socket is worn and when you pulled it down out of one of the uppward gears you lifted the stick inadvertantly. What then happened was the ball on the end of the stick slipped out of the socket and didn't shift out of the gear you were in. You then shifted into another gear and thus it's locked in two gears and the engine will stall. If you keep this tractor for long you will get good at pulling the stick out and fishing around until all the shift rods are lined up and away you go. Believe me, sitting crossways on a grid road at -30 F in the dark is usually the place it would happen. This won't happen if you put your palm down on the shifter instead of grabbing the knob from below. Hope this helps. The only other cure is to take the top plate off and put everthing back where it belongs.
