Summary

When I tried to make my last cutting trip around the yard for the year, I discovered the tranny on my mower (30" Murray mid-engine) would not come out of reverse. The shifting mechanism was froze up solid. Decided to open it up and see if it was repairable before I scrapped the 10 year old mower. Found that due to some water intrusion, the gear selection strips on the main shaft had rusted up. Got everything apart, cleaned it up good and got some fresh lube in. Reinstalled and it works like a champ, except for when I initially got the drive belt looped on top of one of the belt keepers and got it smoking.
