Wasn't my choice but the Husqvarna riding mower wouldn't go. The culprit happened to be some wire screen that got into the transmission yoke that allows you to go faster when you push down on the right foot pedal. Yta 18542 is the model number. So the yoke is plastic and cannot be ordered. New trans $660. Whatever. So my fix. Fixed to where it goes at one speed by placing a small worm clamp inside the sliding mechanism, keeping in one position. Tested and works. It's strange that such a critical part would be made out of plastic. Throw away world I guess.

Heck, Ford put plastic intake manifolds on the Town Cars, Crown Vics, Grand Marquis, and F150's in the late 1990's to early 2000's...and they leaked like **** after a while. GM did the same thing on the Buick engines, not sure if they did it on others. Designed obsolesce.
