7117 six speed

Recommended Posts

My 7117 six speed wont shift from the high to low gears, what do I need to adjust? It will switch if I pull the seat up and force it over, tomorrow I'm going to adjust the clutch, foot brake, I'm going to go through it and adjust everything, but manual doesn't mention the 6 speed?

You may need to lube all the moving parts of the 6 speed linkage. Lube well with medium weight oil, hold the clutch pedal down and work the linkage several times until it becomes free. If the slide rail is gummed with old, dry oil, clean with solvent and re-lube.

The 7117 and 917 6-speeds are rare...most had hydros. The 6-speed is identical in all 7000/700/7100/900 tractors. Such as a 710 or 7010 6-speed. Use those as reference for your adjustments.

As posted above you just need a little bit of lube. I had a similar issue on my 710, actually the reason the guy sold it, said it wouldn't come out of low range. I got it home looked it over realized nothing was broken or bent put some oil on a few key places and it shifts like butter. :D

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
