3416H No reverse

Recommended Posts

Happy Holidays all! I am working on a 3416H with a good, non leaking Vickers hydro,( purchased from a fellow club member). With the tractor's rear end raised and the double ball linkage removed I can manually move the arm on the shaft for forwards and reverse and get a good strong forwards and reverse response from the hydro. When I connect the double ball joint linkage,( which I just obtained a brand new one of)and use the hydro lever, I get forwards but no reverse. In previous discussions the double ball joint thing has been incriminated and also the linkage at the bottom of the hydro lever. I have a new double ball joint, and there is no visible play at the pin and linkage on the bottom of the lever. Has anybody else had this problem and found where the problem exists and how did you deal with it? I'm sure it must be in the linkage path somewhere.I have also noted that what parts diagrams show for the arm that is pinned to the shaft coming out of the Vickers..looks different than what is actually on the unit. The diagrams depicts a part # 166092 that looks different than what I have . Were there changes made along the way? I just got the engine running great on this thing and I'd like to get the hydro working just as well. Help! Brian

RayS, Thank you for your post. I have gone through this process repeatedly. My neutral adjustment is dead on and I have good forward. I just don't seem to be able to get a good strong reverse,( any reverse for that matter) even when I tune the neutral adjustment closer to reverse than forward. Any other thoughts?

If you can get good reverse with the linkage disconnected You have something worn in linkage when going in reverse or something restricting its rearward movement.

which you should be able to see, some "scrunching up" of the linkage as you move from N to reverse. Somewhere that you push but the shaft doesn't move. Sounds like a cheap fix. Reverse is overrated. Full speed ahead!
