970 shifting

I've got a very early 970 tractor and have been working on the motor slowly this winter. Bought it with motor issues, so I never had a chance to drive it and check the rear end. I was checking the brakes and leaks the other day and saw the powershift lever slot looked different then the other 70 series tractors we run. It has reverse in the gear selector and not in the powershift. It feels like actual gear shifting when you move it. I'm going to do some more looking at the linkage but has anyone ever seen this before? I didn't get much info from Rich Tworek at CNH because the card was lost.

The only ones with reverse there were the standard shift tractors. The insde short lever in that case would be a Hi Lo range lever and the tractor would have a standard clutch and you should see the external linkage fastened to a arm on the LH side of the bell housing. Either way, std or powershift they are a great tractor. mEl

Don't lose any sleep- over it, That would be a very easy mistake to make if you never ran the tractor and were not familiar with the 8 speed. mEl

Today's Featured Article - Restoration Story: 1964 JD 2010 Dsl - Part 2 - by Jim Nielsen. Despite having to disassemble the majority of my John Deere 2010's diesel engine, I was still hopeful I could leave the engine-complete with crankshaft and camshaft-in the tractor. This would make the whole engine rebuild job much easier-and much less expensive! I soon found however, that the #4 conrod bearing had disintegrated, taking with it chunks of the crankshaft journal. As a resul ... [Read Article]
