The WC transmission has a lever and rod issue- I think that is what old refers to. Many times, the inside of the tranny is missing a link and spring. Originally, when you moved the shift lever to the right, you hit a "stop". Forward of that was third, below was fourth gear. To get to reverse, you activated a lever on the shift, and the shift lever went farther to the right, and moving it down, went into reverse. You might need to rebuild the tower, and get inside to see if the washer, spring, and link are there. Then, it works right, and you can find all of the gears.

Buy the I&T manual that covers the tractor for pix and explanation.

3rd and 4th are hard to find in them trannys so I'll bet you just haven't held your mouth right yet which is what it takes to get into 3rd and 4th. Plus standing on one leg and dancing helps some times. LOL

They're no diffrent than a truck transmission. I hope I work so good when I'm 60+! Like the others said, the shift tower needs overhauled.

do not know why you have problems finding 3rd and 4th gear in a wc.unless your shifter is wore out or loose. never have a problem getting either one of mine into 3rd or 4th.

The reason I under stand the problem is because I have a W speed patrol which uses a WC tractor as its power unit and it can be fun at times to find 3rd and 4th in it

Today's Featured Article - On the Road with Dave Gohl: Deere Departed Friend - by Dave Gohl. Have you ever had to part with a dear friend? It's not easy. If it's due to death, your feelings could be in disarray for days, months or even years. Even now after almost 4 years, I still miss my dad.

To this day, it's some of the best stories I've ever heard. And now, I'm so glad that I asked those questions, and if I were a little smarter i ... [Read Article]
