Well the 185 is almost complete but I seem to be having an issue getting the shifter back in again . The shifter is in second and pretty sure the tractor is also but seems the forks are to far apart to slip in the collars . Everything matches as far as transmission , parts all in order. I'm gonna keep trying but any suggestions would be appreciated.

Big oops collar is on wrong side of third gear now that I quit telling myself that I had it right . When assembling the split thrust washer slid out a couple times so I had to take the gears off the shaft , laid them on the bench in order I thought . Late at night in a hurry. Guess I need to order a couple more gaskets . Gonna be a long day .

Tractor in neutral , rocks back and forth easily . Move rear collar forward engages second gear . Collars at this point are 3 1/2 inches apart . Shifter in second gear puts the forks about 4 1/2 inches apart . What am I missing.

Never had any problems putting the cover back on with the shifter and gear in second. Make sure the other gears are in natural, and second is in second.

Today's Featured Article - Grain Threshing in the Early 40's - by Jerry D. Coleman. How many of you can sit there and say that you have plowed with a mule? Well I would say not many, but maybe a few. This story is about the day my Grandfather Brown (true name) decided along with my parents to purchase a new Ford tractor. It wasn't really new except to us. The year was about 1967 and my father found a good used Ford 601 tractor to use on the farm instead of "Bob", our old mule. Now my grandfather had had this mule since the mid 40's and he was getting some age on him. S ... [Read Article]
