Is there a shifter conversion kit for converting to 856 style hi low reverse on my 806. Going into reverse is sometimes a real chore. 
Thanks  

What exactly is it doing? Reverse is no harder to engage than high low.  Only real advantage to the 56 style arrangement is for loader work. 

If it grinds, it's the clutch brake,  if it's hard to get out of gear your TA is out of adjustment.

A little slop in each connection from the shift lever to the fork with make it harder to shift/ shift completely.   With some disassembly and new parts, the slop can be mostly eliminated.   Then adjust linkage and transmission brake per the service manual.  They can shift well. We have a 706 as our primary loader tractor.  Does a decent job.

My understanding is that converting to 56 shifting is a lot more involved than you probably think. It's not just swap out the box on the side of the console, ba-da-bing, done. Doesn't something have to be changed on/inside the range cover as well?

Besides a 56 shifter on a tractor in a salvage yard is likely to be even more worn than what you have.

You have to change the entire top cover, and add the extra rod that goes down through the console. It's a fairly involved job.
