1066 Won't stay in reverse

1066 IH - manual clutch, 8 speed, no t/a. Made a loud "pop" the first time it happened and started to growl. I had it under a heavy load in reverse. Now it just seems to slip out gently. When this happens, I have to pull (or sometimes push) the shift lever to get back into reverse. I took the top of the range transmission and the spring on the tension arms was missing. I replaced the spring and put it all back together, but it did not fix my problem. My shifter works better, but it still will not stay in reverse. I would appreciate any help or advice on this subject. Thanks, Mitch Sisson - Bellefontaine, MS

You can fix the problem most times with out splitting the tractor, pull the side plate off behind the step and see if the rev. shift fork is broken or there is to much play in the internal linkage , also make sure that you check all the linkage from the shift levers all the way down > Just by replacing the headed pins will make a big differance in free travel. When you remove the side plate you will lose about a gal of High Tran. you can put a coupel of 6 inch blocks under the left tires and you should not lose more then a quart, i think most of the trouble is in the shift fork.

Thanks for the tips. After replacing the missing spring under the range cover, I test drove it before I put the sheet metal back on. I was watching the reverse linkage (several times)when reverse faded out, and could not detect any movement. A broken fork makes sence and would explain the loud "pop" the first time I had this problem. Can the fork be replaced through the inspection plate or will I have to separate the tractor?

Yep while your in there make sure that all is well and replace what is needed. But sometimes you find more then you want and it is required to go a lot feather then you want to get it fixed and spend a lot more then you planed.

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. ... [Read Article]
