555c backhoe 1989

I have a shuttle shift on this hoe that is blowing fuses. It is a 5 amp fuse and it blows as soon as I shift into forward or reverse. I checked all fluid levels and they seem to be fine. Does anyone know what might be causing this problem. Also I'm trying to find a service manual for this hoe. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

40045531 is the part number for the OEM repair manual. Available from your New Holland dealer; should be under $125 plus S/H.

On the lft side of the transmission is where the connector is for the forward-reverse solenoids. Unhook it the and see if you still blow the fuse. Could be your shuttle lever. There has been a change of design on them. If it has a loop over the lever to keep it from moving too far its the old style. Good possibility its in the lever. Hope this helps.

This is what I found. On the forward & reverse lever the wire for the override switch had become disconnected and was causing a short. Sometimes the most frustrating problems can be so simple. Thanks a bunch Gary for guiding me in the right direction. I really do appreciate it.
Have a great day.

Today's Featured Article - Recollections of a John Deere GP - by Charlie Cook. I grew up on my dad's 280 acre general farm in Western Michigan. Dad's only tractor when I was very young was the old GP. My first recollection of this tractor was when dad allowed my brother and myself to ride on the tractor with him driving. One of us would sit on the left fender (away from the clutch) and other would sit on the gas tank and hold onto the crankcase breather pipe. ... [Read Article]
