John Deere STX38 transaxle
I'm been watching this forum for a while to see if others had the same problem as me, but apparently not. I have a John Deere STX38, yellow deck, made in 88. It has a 5 speed transaxle made by Peerless. The problem is it won't shift out of third gear for anything. This was given to me after it was left sitting without being ran for three years. Could it be that there is some corrosion in the transaxle, or could it be that there is an electrical interlock of some sort on the trans. By the way, it was moving fine before it sat for the three years, it was just that the starter gave out, and my FIL bought another lawn mower. Thanks in advance for any help.
