no it wasnt cast aluminum and about the shiftball if you have ever otten a mtd on a steep hill going up or down it wont shift F N R becuase of to much force so a locked axle is like force on the transaxle and it wont shift on flat or steep land so if you take the shift ball out it will release alot of force and it will shift dont know why it dose that
