I have a 1952 Oliver 88 that frequently will not shift between the low and high ranges. I was told by some on this site that the problem was likely the shifter rails.
I have never had an Oliver transmission apart before. If the rails are the problem, will they have an obvious wear spot or are they adjustable to match the shifter? The wear on the gear shift lever has been welded and ground down so that shouldn't be the problem.
My grandpa had an old Oliver mechanic help him put the gear shift lever in about a year ago without much improvement. I just want to fix it so I can rely on the tractor around the farm.
