It pushes into the tower from the inside. Stuff a shop towel into the tower, use a magnet to retrieve the pin, if dropped. Put grease on it when installing- will hold it in place.

My post was a bit misleading...if you are installing it, it goes into the tower from the inside. Removing it, push from the outside, and it will drop inside the tower. WD45 has 2 pins, 180 degrees apart, since the lever is curved and has more twisting torque applied when operating the shift lever. I have one WD tractor that the PO ground off the head of a bolt into a square, and nutted the bolt on the outside of the tower. Not really a dumb idea! Beats losing it when the shifter is bad and needs to be pulled often to rearrange the forks. BTW- if you need to align the forks, works fine to wire a low voltage bulb socket to a battery, drop the wire down into the tower when aligning the forks. Gives enough light to do the job, while using a flashlight from above is often in the way. Or, maybe I should get the tower and forks fixed????

If it would just start when I turn the key, then I would use it more often. In addition to a bad case of old age, most of the tractor's original electrical system was simply too unreliable to keep. The main focus of this page is to show how I upgr ... [Read Article]
