transmission control lever

I have a H7016 That I think is the greatest. But there is one thing that I have not been able to figure out yet. When the transmission control lever is in the middle (starting position) the tractor actually goes in reverse. Is there anyway to adjust this so that neutral is actually neutral. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

There is a linkage adjustment that's described in the Large Frame Tractor maintenance/repair manual, and also in the Allis-Chalmers 716H Owner's Manual, but I don't think it's in the normal Simplicity owner's manual (don't know for sure). I suggest you download one of those and adjust the linkage. It's a bit too complicated for me to describe (especially from memory) without a lot of words and pictures... :)

Kent's right. Proper adjustment is a little complicated, but well worth doing. There is also a very important linkage spring that is often missing. Linkage wear or lack of lubrication can also present a problem. Some of the dealers recommend installing a block in another linkage spring to eliminate the problem. I modified the linkage on one of my tractors to disengage the hydro when the parking brake is applied. Search the archives for "neutral". You'll find lots of info.
