:blink: How was the Road gear handled by Farmall in the F-series?
Was the road gear was in every transmission but locked out by a bolt at the factory unless Rubber was ordered?

Thoughts?

We have two 1939 models and they both have road gear in the right-forward position which was previously the location for 3rd gear.

Dad had a 1935 F-20 that had the fast fourth gear in the upper right position. It was handy...you could start out in third, then shift to fourth by double clutching and shifting with your right foot!

The F-12 and F-14 had a 3 speed trany, they could be specially ordered with a 6 or 9 mph road gear. Heisler (sp) also made a 2 speed for the F-12-14-20-30.

Hey Old F-20, The internal overdrive won't add any speed to the add-on box on a F-20, Regular,or F-30 because you shift the transmission into neutral and then engage the box to go into overdrive. Out- run the green one's! I like the way you think!
The F-12/14 box will double up the input shafts speed or more depending on the ratio in the box. That is why it is recomended that the pulley be removed from the tractor.
Does anyone have a F-12 box that is quite? I have one but sure makes a lot of whinning when in overdive. My 12 is on steel and will not even pull itself on level ground in 3rd High.

I was just going to say that but you beet me to it :D

I have 3 of the heisler 2 speed boxes for the f-12-14, only one is on a running tractor and it is fairly noisy, i would like to put the other 2 on another one of my running 12's to see how noisy they are. Why should the belt pully be removed, i have one on the F-12 that has the 2 speed. Also the 2 speeds i have all have the same ratio stamed on the box's tag, was there differn't speeds made ??
