I just recently purchased a case 351. Iíll be straight forward and tell you that I know nothing about the tractor. I liked the way it looked so I bought it. The lever that changes the tractor from high, direct, and low did not work. I thought maybe it sheared a pin or something. I messed with the lever a little and ended up with it in my hands. From what I could see, I think that maybe the pin that held it in came out. This in turn allowed it to slide sideways letting the woodruff key drop out.
ALL I WANT TO DO IS PULL THE COVER SO I CAN FIX IT!!
With this said, does it need to be in neutral to pull the cover? I think itís in direct drive right now. The cover is loose, but will only come up about ľĒ. Any suggestions on how to get the cover off would be great. My next step would be to split the tractor, which does not look like it would be very hard to do. I just donít want to tare it apart too much if I donít have to because it has a nice paint job. I guess if Iím forced to, then I will be able to see how well off the inside of the tractor is. Any insight would be greatly appreciated!
Also, any info that someone that has a 351 should know would be nice too!
