Default Pro 15 tranny problem

My sons pro 15 transmission just stopped working. First thing we did was check the clutch and slipper. Its getting power to Transmission input shaft. Tore it apart and found no stripped gears. The one way bearing was slipping so we put a new one in and put it back together. Still nothing. Took it back apart and made sure we had it together right.The gears with the pawl's seem to be working (pawl's not stuck). Reverse shaft appears to be functioning correctly. Put it back together tonight still no luck. Any idea's would be appreciated.

Well, also make sure the forward/reverse servo that shifts between forward and reverse is fully and completely "throwing" it into forward and reverse.....

Took off the linkage at the servo and manually moved in and out. no difference.

how can you have tranny problems with a pro 15 engine? it makes no power what-so-ever. the gears could be made out of lead and they would be fine.

i think a pin in the tranny might've slipped out. it is pretty common.

Just put an OS 15 in it Goes pretty good, nothing like my savage.

Where is this pin at I don't see anything on the exploded view. Can you give me a part number so I can find it on exploded. Thanks for the help.

4995 shows a gear. Is there a pin in it? So it should not spin on shaft?

OK I see it M 3/12 in the #4995 gear. I will take it apart and check that pin. It is a threaded pin unless its the old style? Mine is the newer style.
