Old Ariens shifter sticking
Original Message   Feb 18, 2013 8:50 am
Old 7HP Ariens shifter always goes from N into R just fine, and will always go into forward speed 1 but sometimes has a lot of resistance or gets stuck before going to 2, 3 and 4.  Once it's in the faster speed settings it advances and retreats just fine - it's like there's a bump in the road shifting sometimes and only upwards between speeds 1 and 2.

The hexagonal shaft with the rubber wheel is lubed, the joints on the shift rod wiggle just fine, the shifter handle slides on it's housing just fine; what could be causing it to bind?
