Did these tractors have a transmission brake to bring the shafts to a stop to prevent grinding them into gear? From the knowledge I have acquired since I ran one, I wonder if the ones we had were out of adjustment or if there just were none in the design.

It will HELP SLOW the gears down but it will not stop them in a instant For best results idle the engine down before you push the clutch down and just wait to make the shift. If you look back thru the archives under clutch , T/A dump valve adjustment i have layed out how to do all of this the easy way .
Please tell me more! My 706 does grind a bit, though I don't force things. I know of only a "parking brake" that locks the transmission, but things have to be stopped to use that, or so I thought. I'm looking at the manual. Where is this other brake? Thanks, JimO

Jimmy Attached picture above shows transmission brake location ( red arrow) New ones are available from several aftermarket sources. Not difficult to replace. Contact me for recommendation for supplier source.

Weldon; Sorry for my slow response; I was out of town. Thanks for the info. I can't get to that kind of thing until next year. But I will save your comment and reference. I would not have known that the parts you highlighted did what they apparently do. I'm almost done working on hydraulic leaks, and winter is nigh. I won't be taking anything apart until after snowblower season!!! Thanks again, JimO
Today's Featured Article - Allis Chalmers ED40 - by Anthony West. Allis Chalmers as a tractor manufacturer in its own riht is but a memory. However the number of AC tractors still in existence today as either restored or unrestored examples is a testament to the quality of their products. This in itself is always apparent here in the U.K when attempting a purchase, as no matter what the model or condition the price will always be strong.
