I pulled the shift lever out of my wd45 today. (Shifter would twist and was very loose). Took it out with the tranny in neutral. Not sure where it is worn out. Looking at the ball part way up the shifter, There is a single grooveabout 5/16 of an inch wide(on ends), towards the centre of the groove, it has been worn kind of round. The bottom part of the shifter that activates the forks I imagine looks as if it is worn on one side where the round piece meets the shaft, this is not a flat surface as is the other side but worn in on one side. What should I be doing with this if I don't want to replace the shifter ... where do I build it up to re machine? also the bottom of the shifter (Round part) is worn a little flat.
Sorry for the poor description. If someone is experienced with this type of repair and willing to help, I can email pictures directly to you for your inspection.

Thanks in advance

Do you really have a WD45? The shifter, with only one groove, sounds like a WD- could have been switched if your tractor is a WD45. Does the engine have a removeable cover on the right side? Then it's a WD. WD has a straight shift lever, not curved. The lower end of the shifter should be a tapered rectangle- not a ball. They can be welded up and ground off to match the shifter forks.

As for the ball, weld up the groove, 45s should have one groove on each side. Grind/file it smooth and round again. Remill slots. Make new keys with larger shank to fit worn holes in shifter tower. Possibily drill out holes in shifter tower to clean them up. You could use a thin bushing in them to busy them back to stock size for use with stock keys. Weld up end of shift lever and file/grind to repair worn portion.

There is are 2 pins in the casting where the ball rides.Take the pin out with a punch.
