Re: I believe im stuck inbetween reverser gears?

Re: I believe im stuck inbetween reverser gears?

I've tried to pry it either direction .. but it won't budge.. there is an inspection cover there as well.. but I haven't taken it off yet. I went to check my parts 440.. and it doesn...

Hi, I+T is a 3rd party manual printer. They copy, under license, but somehow manage to leave about half the information out. Which half do you guess you always need?? :P As Lavoy pointed out, good for birdcage liners. Also handy dandy in the outhouse (dual purpose there)..... ;) Places like Tractor...

Welcome to the site. Looks like you have a good starting point for entering the world of crawlers. As Lavoy stated, getting a good service manual is money well spent.

Lavoy I have the parts manual... but yes..agreed.. a service manual is another of the 1st tools I will need... if you can put me onto one.. I would purchase it... I'm not q...
