    I've got a Honda FG100 mini tiller and the transmission went went in it, has anyone else had this problem. This is the third year I had it, just off warranty, and I'm afraid it's going to cost as much to fix it as to buy a new one.

    If you just look from 2 days ago, there is the IDENTICAL problem!

    Well thats all it took tine shaft with new pressed on brass gear. part #15 on IPL 2nd link. Part cost $35 and took about a hour to replace. If you buy the whole trans for $115 it will take you less then a half hour to replace it, 6 bolts total.
    Lesson learned, make sure to grease lower end once a year per owners manual, never knew that before and bet thats why a bunch of these have this problem. Kind you use in a grease gun to grease ball joints and U-joints.
    Pete's had the part to me in 3 days.

    Bet you didnt grease your lower trans unit every year either did you? The lower unit TRANS is made by Hoffco. Easy fix.

    that's the thing that made me so mad, every time I change the oil I did the transmission as well. And I've always been very particular about maintenance.
