314H Slow/ Weak Reverse

Recommended Posts

I mowed with my Allis 314H today for the first time today, found a couple of problems. Reverse is ok on a flat level surface, but when trying to reverse on a slight hill, it barely moves and on a steeper hill it won't move. (the tires aren't spinning) Any ideas?? Next problem is that the control handle for the transmission won't stay at one speed, it keeps moving itself back to neutral, kind of a pain holding it up all the time. I would guess that something is loose or worn on the control but not sure without ripping it all apart. Other than that it mows beautifully. Thanks!

I would suggest first to check the hydro fluid level and make sure it is full. I think if the fliter needed replacement, forward motion would also be affected, but you might want to consider the filter just for peace of mind. Check the Tech Tips for a post by RayS on Vickers Neutral adjustment. My 312 also has difficulty in reverse uphill and I suspect the Vickers will need an overhaul at some point in the future. This subject has been discussed before, so try searching the archives for other info.

I had an earlier post reporting the same issue and got some advice from the members. I haven't had a chance to dig deeper into the issue but I've enclosed a link to my posting. there was some very helpful information. http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=81802

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
