'38 Oliver 70

I have a question about the transmission in my dad's '38 Oliver 70 Row Crop narrow front. The problem is there's only 4 forward speeds and one reverse. It is supposed to have 6, right? We took the covers off today and found a spacer on one of the shifter shafts that the shift forks are mounted to. The upper left of both ranges is the ones affected by the spacer. There's one other gear that doesn't work also. Does the 70 have 2 reverses? And, does it have 2 5th gears like the 60 or a 5th and 6th? Did Oliver made a blockoff for the higher gears? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hi Rooster , I had two Oliver "70" tractors in the past , along with 2 or 3 parts tractors. I know the one had 6 speeds forward and 1 reverse. There was another spot in the double "H" gear shift pattern where the operator could pull and hold the shifting lever back , causeing the tractor to back up. But that wasn't really considered a reverse. The second it was not held back in that position , it would pop out of gear. And if I remember right , that would not even work under load. And the other Oliver "70" was a 4 speed. I believe that is how it was. One was a 6 speed. And the other was a 4 speed. Both had one reverse.

Don't know on 70's but early 60 had road gear blocked out on models that were factory steel so may have came on steel . If it has cast iron top on trany it doesn,t have high gears . Parts book says C71 on serial number plate is 4 speedgear combination 'C72- 6 speedgear combination hope this helps
