The lever on the right side is the Ampli-torque lever which on most all of the G900s were a two speed hi and low shift, similiar to IH. Not sure if any of them ever had 3 speed torques in them. How do you mean exactly when you say it grinds when shifting gears? It does take a while after depressing the clutch for it to stop before you can shift gears without any grinding, and in my experience a little longer than most other makes, and longer than you would think. It is that way on my G950 which is basically the same. If it doesnt stop after waiting say...30 seconds then there may be other problems. It is normal for it to shift harder in high range with the torque, as the operators manuals state, shifting is easier in low range. I believe they are supposed to be started in high range and on older models were always good to shut them off in high range, as I was told by a knowledgable MM guy, otherwise if the engine kicks back it would weaken the springs in the torque.

I believe some of the G900's had a 3 speed amplitorque. Its also important to know that low range can slip or not work at all in these tractors or (any MM) with an amplitorque. Low range is when the lever is pulled back (toward the driver). Also note that the tractor will "free wheel" in low range. We have 3 G900's diesels along with about 30 other MM's. Feel free to email me with any questions.
