Massey Repair Job
"I have a Massey-Ferguson TO-35 tractor made in the late 50's. When I needed to replace the reverse idler gear, the dealer told me I would have to take out all the other gears in the transmission first. Not wanting to spend all that time, I found a faster way. I hooked a piece of stiff wire around the gear to support it, then pulled out the idler shaft from the back of the transmission. The gear can then be snaked out around the other gears from the top. To install a new gear, you just reverse the procedure. It saves 4 or 5 hrs. of work," says Jack Collins, Enfield, Conn.
