We have a Mainline tiller with two blade mower attachment that we bought in 1990.

Recently I changed the transmission gear oil that had not been done in many years, and certainly not the 300 hours as the manual suggests.
I used a 6 dollar product from tractor supply, Traveller all-purpose 80W-90 gear oil and now the left power lever that changes from speed 1 speed 2 forward, reverse 1 reverse 2 goes freely back and forth, but will occasionally settle into one of the speeds if I move the speed lever a few times all while engine is off. When I start the engine and try to move the power lever in speed 1, the machine will go for a bit then stop moving. If I move it to speed 2, it goes along normally at that speed. I can also engage the blade and mow in speed 2, but same problem when blade is engaged, the machine will go a few feet then stop moving forward.
My husband had the tiller attachment on recently and the usual happened, gear noises and mumblings coming from the garden. He adjusted the clutch cable, which seems to be something he has to do every year upon first use. I had my own way of getting it to engage without clutch noises by moving the machine forward a few feet, pull the lever to engage, and if there is any resistance I push the lever away again and move the machine forward a few feet, stop, and try again. After doing this a few times the clutch will unstick and the lever engages just fine. Just wanted to give you the background on any symptoms of the machine before I changed the gear oil. My husband asked me specifically what did I remove to drain the gear oil, and I said the large blue painted plug on the side of the machine, next to a red painted bolt. He was thinking I undid a bolt, but I didn't. The manual doesn't show which is the gear drain plug on our machine, but my husband had a look at it and concurred that I chose the right plug, and not the engine oil drain plug or some bolt.

Gee, what wrong word am I using at this forum! Keep having to edit. Hopefully this gets through. Thanks for having a look.
