Oh dear, mah woman broke mah 1394...

Lady friend comes to me wanting to learn to drive a tractor. Never one to decline a beautiful woman, I say yes, let's get my newly rebuilt 1394 out of the shed for a runabout. Uh oh...

Driving out to the field, in a cab not best described as roomy, I only discovered that she was standing on the range levers when the transmission locked up, :shock: almost flipping us over forward. I was quick enough on the clutch that the engine didn't stall, but would you ever my newly rebuilt 1394 has developed a subtle knocking. It has also mashed my wrist, which continued forwards long after the steering wheel had stopped.

I suspect that the potential damage caused is endless - damaged conrod, damaged crank, god only knows about the transmission. She's running, because I've now taken to chasing her with the 12 bore whenever she gets near my machinery (the woman that is, not the tractor)

Curses.

i cant see that her standing on range levers would cause it to lock up, push it out of gear maybe or at worst be only half engaged and shag out a gear, this would cause loss of drive not trans locking up, only way i can see it locking up is if somehow forward gear and reverse have somehow selected together, siezed, or something, i would jack up back end and turn one wheel to see if other one spins, it may indicate diff or gear box, cant see it being reduction as this would have the affect of popping your foot on a independant,

The tractor is 4wd, and I had been wondering whether it was the front axle: surely the engine should have stalled if the gearbox locked up, no matter how sharp you were on the clutch?

In that case it could have just been very bad luck that it happened at the same time she was in the cab, however I have been using the tractor for years without that occuring, and have never stood on the range levers before. As such, the jury is still out on who has damaged what. Regardless, it makes for a good story and I largely blame myself for not being more careful and observant.
