Moving a Hydra-shift lever?

Post by RichardCoaker » Thu Feb 18, 2010 9:38 pm

Hi,

I'm thinking of moving the Hydra-Shift lever on my 1694 too in front of the spool valve levers, and next to range lever. And was wondering if anyone else has, and could give me some tip's on doing so. Plus anyone got any pictures of ones they have moved!

Thanks

i have seen one moved, i cant remember what it was on, a 6cyl im shure it was a while ago so i cant remember it properly, but i think you could either make a hole in the flour or maybe bring it though the console where the spools are

Ws there a genuine David Brown conversion for moving the lever to near the main gearstick, if you fitted a loader to a Hydra Shift tractor (Calm Scooby, Calm!) you could not get to the lever as the loader controls were in the way. Is his true or have I been eating too much cheese before bed again?!

I seen a few around the sales, The newer tractors were all the same with a cranked lever And a steel box to hold it complete with gear number stickers. Factory fit I would say or a very profesional dealer.
Others though are badly done with a couple of odd sized bolts and mower blades as washers!
From what I can see They use the standard cable? And lever is just unbolted and moved?
Nothing to it if I'm right?

you mount the cable in the other direction on the trans cover (youll need to make a bracket) and drill a hole just infrount of spool valve console and run cable up through there then bolt the lever assembly to the front of console, the lever is mounted nearly touching the upholstry so it clears gear lever and spool levers. well thats how i done my 1394 and it works well, seen 14s 15s like that to

That is the way the Case 2090 is done with the gear lever in front of the lift lever.

I will dig my photo's out from my other computer from when i did mine. I did post them on here origianally i think but the have dissapeared now. Makes them a lot easier to drive once its moved. Jazo is right, the cable has to be turned round to work in other direction and a new fixing plate/bracket has to be made.
