I have a massey ferg 50 1958 vintage. Stuck in reverse, back up to implement hooked up tried to shif out of reverse will notcome out.The high low stick works fine, the clutch is working as I am able to run in reverse. I have drained and refilled the trans hydraulic fluid. I have rocked the tractor back and forth to try and release reverse no luck. I really do not want to pull the shift tower if I do not have to. I use the tractor in light duty work.
HiI'm Wayne I will help you with this Good Afternoon, Is the stick still in reverse also , or is it loose if still in reverse, shut tractor down , NO clutch, bump starter while pushing gear shift to neutralThis worked many times for me , If not then , Sorry, the Cover removed
worked on all type of lift trucks , IR air compressors
The stick is in reverse, the high low range stick still moves from low to high and neutral. The stuck stick is loose but will not come out with or without the
clutch or engine runnng or dead.
Hi Thank You for that is the stick wobble around like not in a gear Did you try pushing on the stick, engine off no clutch pushing on the stick to get to neutralIf all of this fails , Well sorry to say , need to pull the cover
The stick is very ridgid and does not feel as if it is broke or detached from
the shift rail. othing popped or grinded when I put it into reverse the first time. Note I have not used it in two months or so.
Hi OK then do what I said , engine OFF,Clutch OUT,bump starter , I f it does not come out , Need to pull cover Wayne
I cannot bump the starter with it in gear, the high low shifter has to be in the neutral to start. Which puts the whole transmission in neutral. Unless there is a way to bypass that safety feature to keep it in gear.
MorningThere should be a micro switch at the lever , look for that and jump the wires togetherWayne
Nothing has helped, I will probaly pull the tower this weekend. I hope maybe
someting is amiss with the shift lever it self.
OK, Yes I was afraid of that, Need to pull the cover Hope it just jumped out of forkWayne
Wayne I have rated you already and it tells me that. What am I doing wrong
MorningYes you did, and thank you Ignore that it is a computer generated thing Wayne
