Mine is straight line shifting. I cant get reverse until the tractor is good and warmed up.
There was a huge rats nest under the cowl and I had limited tools. (I was there to get the fenders off this tractor) anyways the tractor is very scrapped out but the range shifter is all there. Someone has already robbed the 1-2-3-4 handle.
On another note, where might a guy get the springs that stabilize the TA handle? Mine wants to stay in low and you have to hold it in 1:1. Looks like it is missing a spring.
