we have owned 2 of them and I drove both on the road and yes it is a big jump into the higher gear and it takes a long time to get up to full speed. Actually I guess you have to be half crazy ( or on lots of medication ) ha ha to take a 75 yr old tractor down the road at near 40 mph ...but I have seen it done :-)

Hey schrocky, how are you doing? Glad to see you on here again. I figured it was a little more than put it in high gear and go. Are they shifted into "high" at a certain speed or something?

I don't know, but wouldn't it just be like shifting to any other gear, I'm sure you'd probebly have to shift rolling, starting in 5th at a stop would probebly kill it, or you'd have to start off wide open, I bet it still bog down a lot. When I get one ill let you come drive it, might be 20 years, but I'm gonna own one before I die. That's one of my goals

That sounds like a deal. That is what I would guess too as even an older U with the fast road gear had a hard time starting out.

Udlx used an extra gear and countershaft. When lever was shifted both contershafts were thrown in neutral position. The added shaft used an added gear for 5th. The governor was also thrown wide open to achieve the 38 MPH.

I knew that, but I could have never explained it. Thanks
