What purpose or what is the power director suppose to be for? Just bought a D-14 the lever lays all the way forward an the button down.What usually goes wrong with them,are they a butt to work on.Never fooled with it,in fact won't get it home until this weekend.Are they normally problematic?

ramtuff NEVER use the middle position of the power director to shift the main trannys gears. IF you do you will have a tractor that jumps out of gear. Ive never worked on 1, dads 1958 D17 had over 25000 hours on the power director before it would not stay in.

Manual engagement, the big stick works great. On the 180/185 tractors the hydraulic action was difficult to be smooth with.

In theory it gives you Live PTO and 2 speed in each gear. On some tractor it works well on others not so well. If all is adjusted as it should be yep pretty good but I prefer the Oliver type live PTO

The power director gives you two speeds in each gear. Push it ahead for the high side, pull back for low side. If using pto equipment, you can pull it back to neutral and the tractor stops, the pto keeps running, (live power. They hardly ever give trouble, and can be adjusted from the outside, but it takes patience, and you need the book. Most thing to watch for on those tractors are how many gears the trans jumps out of, some can be corrected with new shift forks, but if gears need replacing, go borrow somebodys wallet thats fatter than yours. Otherwise they are good tractors, aroung 34 hp.

Cole is exactly right! You can shift from forward to reverse with the lever in the middle if you shift really fast. Like when you are rotary mowing.

Today's Featured Article - The Engine Rebuild Kit - by Curtis Von Fange. I always liked engine rebuild kits. They have all the replacement parts for overhauling an engine without going to the store to get gaskets, special measuring tools, or miscellaneous parts. They come neatly packaged, clean and tidy. But it's important not to let that packaging lull you into a false sense of security. The appearance of matching sleeves, pistons, rings, and bearings can cause frustration and agony if not properly measured and installed in a workshop environment. Following c ... [Read Article]
