I have a 92 STX38 #148288 and the transmission jerks in second and third. I thought it might be easier to replace the trans rather than fixing it. I bought a 91 STX38 #103405 for its transmission. After I got it home I noticed the transmissions are different. The 92 has a Peerless 915 and the 91 has a 930. Will the 930 fit in my tractor without to much trouble or should I look for a 915.
Does anyone know why the original transmission jerks only in second and third. Can that be fixed easily? Thanks

Have you checked the condition and tension of the drive belt? It could be the belt slipping.

I agree with Motor and Austen, we had one that had a slipping belt. Then the transaxle on my 180 will do that due to worn shift guide part inside. Check the belt first!! God willing a easy fix!!

STX38 transmission

I installed a new belt and adjusted it to 1 and 5/8 inches on the tension spring. No help still jerks and has noise coming from the transaxel. Thanks

Hello Jackson, it sounds like the issue we have with the 180, shift key is worn. I believe the trans are easy to switch.
