    On the FX26D that I had the shifter was on the right fender. The FX models are powershift and the F series are regular gear shift tractors. That may be the reason for the right left difference.

    Greg,
    Sold two F17d's this week. Shifter is on the left fender, 3pt tilt on the right. Sold an FX awhile back, but don't remember which side shifter was on.

    Strange and interesting - F series tractors with straight gear transmissions have shifter on the left. FX tractors with powershift have the shifter on the right. Who would have thought. As I said, I have never owned an F or FX tractor. My only powershift is a YM1110D with the shifter in the middle between the operator's legs.

    It seems to me that a foot shifter would be the ticket - kind of like a hydrostatic foot pedal system. I made one but haven't gotten a chance to try it on my YM1110D. I plan to use a throttle or choke cable for the linkage to the regular shifter, but I haven't yet figured out how to attach it to the foot shifter. I attached a photo - what do you guys think?

    I like the design, and it certainly looks stout enough......heavy shift cable would sure eliminate allot of alignment problems and work well for your design. Looks like 1/8 steel and should last the life of any tractor.

    Now that I recall, the FX17D had the same setup. I needed two right arms to run the loader with any speed. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    You are correct. Its 1/8 steel with a coupling welded on for the spring loaded detent ball. I hope to get to installation this winter.

    Try some auto wreckers. A modified shifter cable from a front wheel drive automatic trans. might be the answer.

    Are the frontends built better on the new tractors? I was worried about damageing my? I have a loader on my 2420d. One reasons for thinking of a change was foing to powersteering and more foot room. I was thinking of not getting a loader and buying a bobcat for loader work. Good investment or a wast of money???
    If anyone can tell me where to view more pictures of the fx series that would be great.
    thanks
