154 lo boy high range not working

Postby Xcursion88 » Thu Jun 11, 2015 11:21 pm

Nice forum...
I have a 73 154 lo boy. It is one tough s.o.b.
tonight I jumped on to do a few swaths of mowing and a pop...or light bang if you will....It was one sound and done.
No go fore and aft in high range now.
Low range works. Nothing in high. Any direction before I strip this down?
Thanks

Start with the creeper assembly. HamiltonBobsCubs should have a new gearset for the creeper.

Check a drawing of the assembly. Look on the creeper shaft for a dowel pin.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.

I purchased a 154 with creeper, stuck in low range. Creeper repair parts cost was under $8-. Sheared roll pin and 1/2 moon key.

Gotta strip the tractor down. While you are there check the brake bands for wear and move the end of the battery ground cable from the tractor's sheet metal to the top of the transmission.

You might consider drilling and tapping the bottom of the creeper for a drain plug.
I have an excuse. CRS.

I've heard this pin shear and cause an issue.

Hi I'm new with my Lo-boy, love it, however I just lost hi range. I disassembled today to the rear end now I'm looking for pics or instruction on a creeper gear pin and how far to take apart the rear end.

Thanks, Dave

You need to obtain the service and parts manual for the tractor as well as the operators manual. The service manual has instructions as well as detailed drawings.

Basically you need to disassemble the tractor so that you can get to and remove the creeper. The roll pin, as well as a half moon key are located inside the creeper.

Search function, top of page. There are discussions on repairing the creeper.

The creeper is in front of the tranny. You pull the tunnel sheet metal cover off. The pto belts you need to loosen. If the pto belts are on the engine flywheel you loosen the four bolts on the drive shaft then index it 90 degrees and push it into the cloverleaf cutout in the flywheel. Now remove the clutch lever and brackets. Now the drive shaft and clutch assembly comes out. Remove the rear clutch flywheel and flywheel brake. Now the creeper tranny comes out. Drain it.
