Is Your Honda Harmony Transmission Giving You Trouble?

If you're having trouble with your Honda Harmony 215 transmission, and you need to remove it from you mower, but you don't know how, this video should shed some light on the process, and it is a process.

I have had the transmission out of my Honda Harmony 3 times trying to figure out what was wrong. The last time I took it apart, I promised myself I wouldn't put it back together unless I was absolutely sure I knew it was fixed, and on my journey, I took pictures and video so I could share the results with you.

      Hi Mike,

      Try applying forward pressure to the shift lever after engaging the clutch, if it moves or wants to catch, you problem could be in the shift lever cable adjustment. If you haven't read my other articles on this problem, you'll find them above the comment box on this page.

      Hi Don,

      If it's the transmission, it shouldn't engage until you pull the handle. If the crank turns with a ratchet then the problem has to be between the pull start and the engine.

      My HR215 HXA Honda mower is 25 yrs old has been great I cut grass last week like always started first time I pulled rope. Now rope will not budge. I took the top off and put a socket on the fly wheel nut and the motor has compression, the blade will turn by hand. The rope assembly works fine off the mower put it back and when I tried to start mower the rope will not budge. Is it possible the transmission is locked up, if so can I bypass transmission I really do not need a self propelled mower.

      Hi Clint,

      You will need to remove the transmission and check to see if the nut is loose on the pulley or if the shaft is worn. Let me know what you find, thanks.

      I have the same transmission my problem is that the pulley on the tranmission wobbles back and forth in every direction. This is causing the belt to come off instantly when you engage the drive. How can I fix this. Thank you.

      The transmission drive cable appears to be broken. Can I repace the drive cable without removing the transmission.
