    Default L2900 GST Problem

    I recently purchased a mid 90's L2900 GST with 560 hours. The tractor is in pretty good shape overall but I have an issue with the glide shift. Only gears 1-4 work and it appears that I'm stuck in high range. In other words, speeds 1-4 are actually 5-8. Probably a related problem, but I cannot shuttle shift from neutral to forward or reverse without clutching.

    Any thoughts or suggestions before I turn this one over to the dealer for repair?

    Thanks in advance, Gordon

    Have you checked the trans fluid level???
    Changed the filter?
    Does it have a loader, or did it have one and it was removed?
    Sounds to me like it is lacking fluid.

    Fluid level is okay. It has a loader and the loader and 3pt seem to work okay. I just changed the filter and fixed a slow leak around the sight glass so I'll top off the fluid and try it again tomorrow. A full fluid changes takes almost 11 gallons of UDT so I'm putting that off until I talk to the dealer.

    Thanks for the reply. If the new filter fixes the gst probem I'll let you know.
