806 Parking lock

I'm gotten into my parking lock on this thing and found out it wasn't stripped like I had originally thought. The mounting bolts for pin that drives the pawl down were loose. I tightened them down and the the lock holds now.

But if I could pick you guys' brain one more time I would really appreciate the help.

I only have the spring on the outside, but there is an adjustment (center nut that drive the "L" type end linkages). That can be set to put some pressure on the lock with a kind of a "snap over" point when you apply the parking lock.

The question is do I want to set any pressure with that adjustment or should the only pressure on the pawl be the out side spring?

Thanks in advance for any information.

Well it should be a ferm snap over BUT my advice would be is to spend the money for the change over to the spring loaded park loc. With age of the linkage and ware on the pieces ya can not trust them . Everyone on a 06 up that i have bought got changed as i had one take off on me and it is no fun trying to get up on one of them to stop it . And many people have been hurt or killed because of the old style . Just all ways remember to be at a dead stop and in neutral before engaging the park loc.

Amen brother, I once rode a 706 down a hill when I was about eleven years old. The parking brake was not broken, I shut the stupid thing down without setting the brake and when I starting rolling I had no power brakes. I did not have enough leg to stop the tractor. My cousin (in his young 20s and just back from VietNam) ran after me, ran around the left rear tire, got on the tractor and got it stopped. He surely saved my young life that day, and then insisted that I go back to the field and work some more ground with him (he was on the 656). Made me drive the 706! We are still the best of friends and continue to farm together today!

Thanks a lot for the information. The 806 I have has the slotted plates on the shift linkage that keeps you from putting the lock on if the transmission is anything but neutral.

I'm looking into the spring loaded job. Once I got the floor pan off (no cab) I remembered where everything was - don't remember as being too big a job.

For now I'll set everything per your advice till I can get it changed over.

Thanks again.

Today's Featured Article - An Old-Time Tractor Demonstration - by Kim Pratt. Sam was born in rural Kansas in 1926. His dad was a hard-working farmer and the children worked hard everyday to help ends meet. In the rural area he grew up in, the highlight of the week was Saturday when many people took a break from their work to go to town. It was on one such Saturday in the early 1940's when Sam was 16 years old that he ended up in Dennison, Kansas to watch a demonstration of a new tractor being put on by a local dealer. It was an Allis-Chalmers tractor dealership, ... [Read Article]
