Vickers Drive Neutral Lever

Recommended Posts

Did some more work on the T-12 shiftshaft Drive/Neutral lever. Got it installed in the transmission cover. Works good. Here's what it looks like on the inside: (you are looking down at the right transmission cover. The lever is visible in the lower left hand corner of the frame) This is in the drive position

This is a close up of the shaft in the drive position. It shows the indentation in the shaft that acts as a detente. A spring and ball bearing in the yoke acts as the latch.

This is in the neutral or freewheel position:

and a close up of the shaft in the free position

I noticed that the lever moves much better with a little slap rather than continuous pressure. A little three-finger slap may eliminate the tractor rocking usually required to activate the lever. Well, lots more to do. Got some replacement fluids today. I need the gasket, the pulley for pump (5-1/2 x 1/2), and the brake shaft seal. I also made a one-minute movie that shows the actual movement. Keep in mind I'm a much better video editor than I am a tractor mechanic. Once again, thanks for all your help. You guys are great!

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
