Yes! Correct tooling, and lots of gentle leverage!

Folks,
 Just a brief update in the world of this old orange tractor!
So I have been taking this unit to tractor pulls and having a good time! The engine is fresh and runs real good. 
After I pulled Saturday and was moving the tractor around on Sunday morning, I noticed that it seemed to be stuck in reverse. Having rebuilt the shift tower I was a little surprised, but hey its still a old tractor and things happen. So I pried out the snap ring, pulled the shifter, and gently moved the center shifting fork back to neutral. Re assembled and she acts fine again. Don't know how or why, but crap does happen! Maybe she was just a little ticked I didnt give her a pat on the head for this:

Hope things are good in orange land!

Regards,
 Chris

Nice work Chris!! Winning pulls, that's awesome!

My one WD (the one I haven't gotten fixed up yet) got stuck in reverse for the first time circa 1999 or so. Has happened a few times since then, but we bored out the keyway and put in an oversized pin and it seemed to help the slop. But I am still paranoid when I'm out driving it. Never was quite sure how it happened, but I always figured it was something about the twist of the curved shifter that let it slip out at an odd angle from the rail... But never could confirm it. Hasn't happened in many years, knock on wood. I have a new curved shifter to install one of these days as the old one was hacked up on both ends.

I put a new 12V battery in that tractor this weekend and she wouldn't fire up... So I ordered a new ground strap and battery cable, as the battery itself seems good. Figure to at least make the starter spin, as long as the cable to the starter is good and the ground strap is good and the starter button works, it should at least spin the engine over. Starting there. Getting a jump start on fixing up the other tractor now I guess.

Hey Chris! Glad you still got this ol girl and looks like you eventually did put a new Booster gauge on it too?

Mike,
 Good to hear from you! How are you? I think last time we talked you were having back issues? Tell your Dad and Mom hello from us in NWPA. 

Yes this is the second gauge. First one the needle broke off during plowing. Sandy Lake stood behind the failure and sent me a replacement. The new one, I added a coat of clear to the body as the first one had a little surface rust after a year or so.

Shifter seems to be working fine after a removal and  "adjustment"!

Regards,
 Chris
