    Question mtd 990 gears out

    Can any one tell me if the gears on an mtd 990 about a early 70's model are hard to adjust or replace. When it starts and you put it in gear only 1st and sometimes 2nd gear works but 2nd seems more like 1st, now reverseis also is acting up. Any help would be great.
