I am looking at buying a 1977 case 380 that has shuttle shift, the transmission will not go into low range. Is there a common problem with these transmissions? Would it be worth fixing? Any help would be great.

Not a dealer. I farm some and play with DBs in my spare time. I have a accumulated a mess of used parts and parts tractors along the way.

My email should be there on the modern side.

About what i would expect for a "dealer" price around here, maybe a little more.

If you can buy it right, and plan on fixing it yourself, you can easily come out ahead.

If you plan on paying someone to fix it, it sounds like a loosing venture unless it is really cheap.

"getting sticky" sounds to me like a bent/bending/broken shift fork, or the shaft that the H/L gear slides on has damage.

By the schematic, High/Low is a simple sliding gear set up, not much to go wrong.

Probably not much more work than pulling the levers and cover.

Are you sure of the shift pattern, from the schematic it looks to be the classic DB push to the side against a spring to shift fore and aft??? maybe nothing really wrong.

The current owner said it became sticky going into low range and then would no longer go into low range. Trying to make sure that the cost for repairs and the price of the tractor will Pan out to equal current market value. Do you know what current market value would be for something like this? The tractor is in excellent condition only 2700 hours And it is a diesel. Thank you for your help is greatly appreciated as I am a novice when it comes to tractors.
