    Hi to you too! Thanks for the intro.

    You CAN post in the Craftsman forum - just a suggestion.

    I had the same problem with my 6 speed Craftsman I was able to fix it, but it required removing the transaxel, opening up the case, and cleaning the crud that had built up on the sliding shaft that causes the gears to change. To be honest with you this was the first time I ever opened up a trans, but I used a digital camera to take pics of it as I worked on it, because if it doesn't go back exactly the same way as it came apart--it wont work. If you do open it don't worry about the grease...it's supposed to be there, also use gasket sealer on the edges to seal the 2 halfs together....good luck
