I have the Sabre Lawn Tractor 15.538 1646 operators manual published in Nov. 1997 I believe that it was purchased about the time, as I purchased it second hand.

Occasionally, my transmission drops out while I am driving. I then have to get off the tractor and push it forward to get it to reengage. Then it will go as normal until it occurs again.

Apparently I am not going to get an answer from you in a timely fashion, so please cancel my request and cancel the charge to my credit card. I am not very happy with all the added charges being requested to provide an answer to my question.

Hi, Experts are not employees of the site and I was logged out working with customers and had a late lunch. I responded at 11:00 with my question, you responded at 2:27 and expected an immediate response less than 10 minutes later?

We can post and follow up as needed on here. You also did not post your tractor information and put your question in the car category instead of small engines unfortunately. Did you want some help with this or do you want to close it out?
