I have an older 185 hydrostatic. It has needed some work this spring and now I have hit a snag.
There is no range of movement when I engage it in gear (I know it doesn't have gears). It only allows me to move it a small amount forward and reverse.
I assumed it would be linkage, but it is not. I traced it to where the linkage connects under the tranny, and it seems to be internal. The rod/connector that feeds in to the tranny has a very limited range of movement.
Any suggestions on the problem??
I have done all the work on it since I bought it a few years ago, hasn't given me to many problems, but I hate giving in and bringing it to the dealer. I would really like to do this myself.
