Ford 1710 4WD Control?

I very recently bought an 84 1710 with a 770B loader to use while my Massey MF30 Industrial is being repaired. I thought I had located all the controls - mainshift and range selectors; PTO; diff lock; creeper range etc. Then I noticed a comment in this forum on the 1710: "We almost always have the tractor in 4WD". So now I'm wondering - is it even possible to take it out of 4WD? If so - can someone point me towards the control? I found nothing at all in my manuals. Thanks for your help!

Thanks, Bern. That solves the mystery. Seems the operator's manual I was given with the tractor is for the 2WD offset tractor model. That same lever position is used on the 2WD for an optional underdrive "creeper" gear. Guess I will need to order the 4WD op manual, and list the other on eBay. At least the I&T service manual I have covers the 4WD model!

This also explains why I got stuck last night in soft stuff, and had to use the diff lock to drive out. I was blaming it on the turf tires!

Yes, it is possible to take the tractor out of 4WD. The operators manual will most certainly have a picture of the location, which I believe varies slightly based on transmission type.

Try lever #13 at the link below.
