HI, New to the board. New to homesteading. Hear in Northern Michigan, winter seems to come early, and this year spring late and winter late too - bummer. As we are new to homesteading. Making great progress though with our dogs. My brother took the tractor, a 1975 ford industrial 3550 down a hill in reverse, clutched dumped and probably hit 1400 rpm. As soon as he got to the bottom, it would only shift when not running. Originally we thought maybe the fork, not the fork. Then we were told the model (probably other models as well) has a hydro lockout in the form of a couple of little steel straw like rods that bearings rise in and lock the hydro out when in neutral at too many RPM's to prevent blowout. I was told to take the hood off, then there will be a plate, remove the plate, I will see two small steel cylinder style straws rise, and I will see a steel ball bearing lifted and stuck, and then I was told to push them both down (it is allegedly a X 2 thing), wash out, WD etc, change out fluids and roll. Can anybody assist a semi-new homesteader, and a totally new tractor guy?
