Any story leading to this point? It has been around a while, was it outside unused for a long time or did it just get stuck in the middle of mowing the yard?

Ok, thanks, that helps. I was thinking the needle bearing in the top of the tranny might be rusted up, but since it has been working often and recently, I'd say not. I think the shift keys in the trans are bent, damaged, or broken.

Seems like my grandpa had one of those, I remember him saying that the transmission seemed like it needed lubricant, but no way to add anything, so he tapped a hole into the transmission, added some lubricant, and plugged the hole. Not sure if yours is similar or not.

Yeah, it's not hard to open the case and see what went wrong.

Find a neighborhood kid willing to help? Or let a shop fix it.

Murray tractor

I have the identical tractor which is a 1982 model. If you phone 1-800-661-6662, they may be able to help. Mine still runs like a finely tuned watch. I had to get an idler pulley for the belt recently, and got help at that number.
