Its just a high low gear that you can shift on the fly. Similar to Internationals torque amplifier. Just be aware that low gear does not have any engine braking for going down hill. Also if it is in high and the tractor rolls back against it when you stop to shift the gears can bind. Shift the multipower to low and the transmission gears will relaease.

Move the mp lever in one swift, smooth motion. I would recommend changing the hydraulic oil, filter and pull the cover under the rearend and check/clean the sump screen. If you look back thru the archives for the 1105/35/55 you"ll find a lot of useful info too.

I drove the tractor around in my field today and tried out the Multi Power lever. I see where it could be useful to switch to a lower or higher range without stopping the tractor to change gears. I bought this 1155 to pull a scraper to dig a ~one-acre pond. I can see how the Multi Power lever could be useful when the pan starts to get full and I need a lower gear to keep filling it. I'm definitely planning to change the hydraulic oil and screen and telling how long it's been since it was changed last. One good sign is that the hydraulic oil that was in it looked pretty clean. I was just thrilled that it didn't have water in it!
I have one more question that maybe y'all can help me with. So far, it won't start when cold unless I give it a shot of ether. I found the place behind the grill up front to mount a can, and the button under the starter switch works fine to get it started. But I've been reading through the archives for a few days now, and I've seen mention of an excess fuel button on the right side of the injector pump to help cold starting. This button is even listed in the cold starting procedure on the console. But here's my problem: I can't for the life of me find the button! I pressure-washed the injector pump to clean off all of the old gunk, and found a parts diagrams on-line. I still can't find it. I do have an operator's manual and shop manual already ordered, and I am hopeful that one of them will have a picture of where it's at. In the meantime, could one of you be so kind as to give me a description of where to look and what to look for? I'd really like to try it and see if that button will help it start without ether. Thanks to all of you!
