    2155 Range II not working

    Hello All,

    First, my tractor has the reverser transmission so I shift the tractor into forward/reverse by a lever just to the left of the steering wheel. What is working fine is the range I position for gears 1-4. I cannot seem to locate the gate or get to work range II for gears 5-8.

    I'm still trying to figure out my new (used) tractor so hopefully, this is just user error.

    I also did double-check the clutch travel and it looks like it's adjusted as far as possible.

    Rick

    It; the Reverser, is not supposed to work in Range II. The reason being the tractor will be going too fast in reverse.

    The thinking must have changed (or the engineering), newer tractors with reversers, will reverse in any gear.

    I have, knock on wood, NOT reversed my 6415 in top gear I can't imagine the ride, going from 18mph forward to reverse

    Unless I read your post wrong and you have no gears at all in range II or can't shift into range II?

    Correct. I cannot shift into range II and get gears 4-8. I can only find the range I and gears 1-4

    Please note that I'm not trying to get range II to work in reverse.

    Are you saying that because I have the reverser trans I cannot use the range II position at all?

    Are you saying that you do not no where high range is, or it will not go into high range. So take range selector to neutral push over to leftside, then push down/ or back towards the seat. Thats where range II is at.

    That is exactly where the diagram shows the location. Range I is upper right and range II is down to the lower left. The problem is there is no gate there. The lever goes into neutral fine but when I pull it to the left there is nothing there to go to.

    No range II.

    I'm sorry but a picture of what? I cannot see into the transmission? I'm sure if you own a John Dreere tractor and it has a range lever to select between I or II you will understand?

    My tractor does not seem to have the gate for range II. So I only can shift into range I and use gears 1-4.

    Did some research...Can't find a free manual I'm willing to download as I'm sure it won't be a useable link.

    What I did discover...May or May not apply to yours.

    The shift in To HI range is Hydraulic on a 2955...Yours may share this same technology.
    Many issues with this set up.

    Without seeing anything.... Sometimes a pic helps. Shifter area side of trans case..anything to get the Members brain cells stirring may help your problem.
