    Default Stiff Synchro Shuttle


    I just picked up my new (used) 2006 Challenger MT335B tractor today. It is heads and tails above the IH 260A that I had been using. The power, feel and layout of the controls are great - I didn't want to leave the seat!

    My only concern is the synchro shuttle lever. It moves fairly well into reverse, but needs some serious encouragement to move into forward. I am having to snap it into place, sometimes using two hands.

    Any ideas on how to fix this would be much appreciated - or is it supposed to be a bit stiff?
