Would a new shifting lever and pins likely help looseness if the tower looks good?

Pay close attention to the condition of the socket in the tower. We find that they get worn to the point that the lever hits the rails in the trans. If thats the case, then shiming the up and down play won't help.

Maybe, but at $106.00 (what I paid for mine) you may want to make sure first....! Got a friend with a new one you could borrow for a few minutes? :-)

Shimming out the shifter up and down play did more good for me.

If the shifter "twists", then the pins or ball groove are worn or both.. Once the Shifter is removed, be carefull not to drop a pin.. I replaced the pins on my 45 with the oversided pins. Had to take the shifter to machine shop to recut the grooves to a larger size. But there was still a lot of play where the pins sit. I believe the part number for the oversized pivot pin is 218859. Also, the Ball part of the shifter could be worn, which will cause vertical play. Part number for
the shifter washer is 207772. HTH

Yes it would but pay real close attention where pins go in the shift cover. They have a tendency to wear here and you can get oversized pins to correct this.

Today's Featured Article - Third Brush Generators - by Chris Pratt. While I love straightening sheet metal, cleaning, and painting old tractors, I use every excuse to avoid working on the on the electrics. I find the whole process sheer mystery. I have picked up and attempted to read every auto and farm electrics book with no improvement in the situation. They all seem to start with a chapter entitled "Theory of Electricity". After a few paragraphs I usually close the book and go back to banging out dents. A good friend and I were recently discussing our tractor electrical systems when he stated "I figure it all comes back to applying Ohms Law". At this point ... [Read Article]
