Morning all!

Just got home for the holidays from school and headed out to see what I could do about our 430 that"s stuck in reverse. I had recently posted about it and wanted some idea of how to get it off. I know that it needs to be in neutral, and was told that I would need to leift the over up the slightest bit and force the fork back into neutral posistion. But for the life of me, I can;t get the cover to budge at all. Any suggestions? BTW - this is the transmission cover I"m talking about. Thanks. Paul

On some brand X tractors, I would slide the rubber boot up and remove a snap ring and remove the gearshift lever. Then remove the top cover. I don't know if the gearshift lever is the problem you have or the shift rail is bound up.

Well, I was able to losen her up, but there"s a hydraulic tube soming up and over it before I remove it. Can anyone explain the detent (spelling) ball that"s spring loaded. Is it easy to figure out wehre it goes if I just lift the cover up. Now I was told that you were able to lift it up while it wasn"t in neutral by a mechanic down at the shop. Now, he prob hadn"t done something like that in a while, so I don"t know for sure what he meant by that. Paul

Because the shift rails protrude UNDER the transmission lip when it's shifted into a gear, the cover can only be fully removed when in neutral. Since the detent balls are held in by the shift rails, it's impossible for them to come out until the shift rails are removed. The shift rails cannot be removed from the cover until the cover is off of the tractor. Get a strong flashlight, peep under the partially loose cover, and find the offending shift rail/fork. Use a long screw driver or piece of flat stock to pry it into the neutral position.

What is the neutral position? Into the middle? Secondly, there's a metal piece of tubing running over the top of the cover, I assume it's hydraulic and runs the remotes? Just wondering what's going to happen when I go to remove it. Paul

That line is the return oil that goes through your filter and back to sump. You will loose very little oil, just like changing the filter.

Thanks, already did that. Didn't loose anything. But, I still can't seem to move those rails into neutral, got the back of the cover up about 1/2 inch at most, and the front is up less then a 1/8th. trying to work the rails towards the back of the transmission. PAul

Today's Featured Article - Harvestin Corn in Southern Wisconsin: The Early Years - by Pat Browning. In this area of Wisconsin, most crops are raised to support livestock production or dairy herds in various forms. Corn products were harvested for grain, and for ensilage (we always just called it 'silage'). Silo Filling Time On dairy farms back in the 30's and into the first half of the 40's, making of corn silage was done with horses pulling a corn binder producing tied bundles of fresh, sweet-smelling corn plants, nice green leaves with ear; the ...
