Looking for helpful suggestions. Bought a Ford 901 SOS. In very good shape OTHER than ninth gear is "out." Fifth gear and Reverse 1 are erratic.
I WANT to get it fixed. (Save your fingers - I've read all of the "SOS is junk" messages.) Does anyone know of a reputable SOS rebuilder? Could this work like cars or trucks where you can "exchange" your transmission for a rebuilt?
If I need to go to a a Ford/New Holland dealer, please suggest how to go about "investigating" the possibility of repairing the transmission.

I don't know where you live, but we took ours to a Ford/New Holland dealer in SE Minnesota, they work on them all the time.

They were fair and brutally honest!! We bought a couple of seasons on two bands, just as was promised and then it fried. The total rebuild wasn't an option so we changed over to a manual that was available at the time.

The dealer is in Spring Valley I think, I'd have to look it up, but I can if you want.

Good luck,

Purchase an IT manual or preferably the Ford shop manual. Think they are available at this site. You need to follow the diagnostic procedures in the manual to determine what the tranny is doing in each speed selection. Do this after a comlete band adjustment check. Does the tranny seem to work in speeds other than you mentioned?

Don't know where you are located. There are supposed to be two shops in Wi which will/can do the S-O-S. Converse and Simpson. I heard a rumor that there is a shop which does a rebuild/exchange, but haven't found the name or location yet.
What do you pay for a sick SOS where you are located?

You can start with Alexander Tractor Parts in Winnsboro, Texas Ph.1-800-231-6876. They are a Ford Only Rebuilder. Good Luck.
