Toro Power Shift 824 Not Power Shifting

When shift control is moved forward to power shift position and traction lever is engaged, only the latch mechanism releases. The wheels don't go in reverse. Reverse works fine when selected via the shift control.

According to the service manual, "When the shift lever is pushed into the Power Shift slot, a tab on the index wheel contacts a tab on the reverse bellcrank every other time the Power Shift is cycled."

With the control box attached to the machine I can observe this area. I see the index wheel turn but the tabs do not contact the reverse bellcrank tab, so no reverse. It's difficult to figure out which surface of these index wheel tabs is supposed to contact the reverse bellcrank tab.

Is there a common part that fails in this area? The indexing mechanism seems to be intact, just not aligning with the reverse bellcrank tab.

Bought new in 1997.

Most likely spring, flat part number 62-1710 is not putting enough pressure on Wheel, index part number 62-0170 It can be bent so that it applies more pressure or replaced. You will also need push nut part number 3290-320 to put it back together.

I'll replace the flat spring (& push nut) and will post my results.

Thanks for the help.
