Im working on an Allis WC thats had a road grader conversion And the shifter swings all over the place. I,ve got the shifter out and can't figure out which piece is broken. I'd also like to Know what the Button/linkedge thingy does. Thanks for any help.

tom described the problem best --the pins on the left side are still available [[std or oversize]--you need oversize--we braze the slot and cut a new slot to fit new pin--trigger on shifter is to release a spring to shift into reverse--if all is free and working properly we have the oversize pins in stock for repair 1-574-342-4545-days--8-5 for ordering

Here is the deal on the shift lever. We did this on my brothers. The shift lever is long and bent way back so it wants to twist a lot in it's ball and socket joint in the top of the shifter. There is a key on the side, left I think, that fits into the ball of the shifter. The key has a 1/4" pin that sticks out through the side of the housing. This is all to keep the shifter from twisting or rotating in its socket. To fix. Weld up the slot in the shift lever ball. Drill out the hole in the shifter cover or socket to a size that cleans it up. Make a new key with a pin to fit the new hole. Or bush the hole down to size. Mill a new slot in the shift lever ball. Later tractors, WDs with curved shift levers and all 45s had two keys I think, one on each side, you could do this too. Put a grease fitting in the housing somwhere too if you want or lift the boot and put grease on the ball from time to time, not much oil gets up here frim the transmission. If you do this repair you will have a shift lever that is the envy of all WC owners.

When the tractor was new and the shifter not worn- in order to shift into reverse you needed to pull the lever alongside of the shift knob to allow the shift lever to move far enough to the right to engage reverse. Thus, the normal free swing of the shifter let you shift easily into third or fourth when swung to the right. Made it esier to find those gears. Follow the rod linkage into the shift tower and you will find what is worn.

It was called a speed patrol, I have one also, sort of looks like a tractor that got pulled out a little to long and then they put a blade under it and 2 big hand wheels to raise and lower the blade. It takes 1 leg and 7 arms to work it, or at least it seems that way at times. My shifter move around a lot but still shafts well. As far as the botton thing I still don't know what it is and I've had this one for 10 years. Hope this helps a little
