Reversing gear video

Here's a clip from our reversing gear video, to give you some idea of the style and content. This video describes the operating concept of the reversing gear, as well as instructions for adjustment and maintenance, and is available in both DVD and VHS formats.

How does Bar connects to the Brake Band (Reversing Gear)

Any still pictures/drawings/web site/etc available that show how the Brake Band Reversing Bar, MMI #161 (OXX Paragon Reversing Gear) connects to the Reversing Gear Brake Band, MMI #253? Same concerning how the Spring connects. I'm in the process of putting it all back together, and I can't remember how it fits. I knew I should have taken better notes.

Emmett,

If you have a copy of our MMI Service and Overhaul Manual, Chapter 6 has pictures showing how the reversing bar is configured. I don't know of any other place where good still pictures exist of this assembly. Basically, the end of the bar with the connecting hook installs into the top of the shifting yoke, and the end of the bar with a ramp slides between the roller in the end of the adjusting bolt and the large ear of the brake band.

Which way is clockwise?

This is a silly question and it's probably answered in many places but..

In the 'Forward Mode Adjusting Procedure' in Chapter 6 of the Overhaul Manual, in step 6 it says turning the adjusting collar clockwise will tighten the clutch. Clockwise as you face which direction? I will be looking at the 'transmission' in the same direction as the picture in Fig 7. Will I rotate the adjusting collar to the right or left as seen in that picture to tighten Forward Mode.

And is this the right adjustment if my engine "slips out of gear" when I give it too much throttle? If I just back off the throttle it re-engages and I can accelerate again but it slips out at about 1500-1600 rpm.

Thanks,
Randy

Clockwise as if you were behind the engine looking forward at the reversing gear. In the video clip, you would be standing at Don's right looking at the shaft end of the reversing gear. Adjusting the collar by turning it clockwise should reduce and ultimately eliminate all slipping. It's a trial and error process. Let us know how you make out.

Thanks Mark. I'll check back after I dig into it. I think I must have been cutting it close before but I had to put a new shifter cable on and it probably is ever so slightly different than the old one. I'll go through Don's full procedure including adjusting the reversing gear.

A one-notch adjustment should take care of your slippage, and be careful to get the tip of the retaining screw into the notch before you tighten it or you will risk breaking out a small piece of the pressure plate.
