Hello I am looking for information on putting the lo-hi feature on my system 7016. Has anyone done this?

Hi.Not sure what you need but my 7110 has the six speed.I don't see it being a problem so long as you have all the parts. Pulleys,guards, shift lever,shift fork rod,and brackets.There's quite a few exrtra's that you need.You didn't mention if you have all the parts needed.Larry.

Larry I don't have any parts yet the only things I have are the 3 speed stuff. Could you take some pictures of the 6-speed stuff for me. I would like to see some detailed pictures of what is needed.

Here's a link for the parts manual for the six-speed. Might help you out.

Thanks for the link to the parts diagram. That should help some. I still need to see it in a picture to see more of how the pieces connect.

One thing that you're going to need that you may miss by looking at the drawings in the manual is a part no. 1606609 right hand side plate (page 28, part 28). The drawing is wrong. It shows a likeness of the side plate that should be on the tractor that you have now.

Here is what the right hand side plate that you need from a 6-speed looks like:

Here's the last batch of pics showing the shift fork and linkages.

There are a lot of small parts as well that don't really show up in my pics but if you look in a parts manual you'll see whats more detailed then what my pics show.Seeing mines all together and working its hard for me to get any better detailed pics,hope these are what your looking for.Larry

Thanks alot this makes it more clear. It takes more parts than I imagined at first but once I get mine going I still plan to do this.

Some of the folks on here may not like this and i understand that it might be better to keep it like it came here but I like to customize stuff sometimes. Here are some pictures of my progress.

You won't get any grief from me over customizing. And I really like those fenders. You're doing a nice job. :thumbs:

Looks good to me. Just remember it is your tractor, do with it as pleases you. That said, what color will the fenders be? I like them.
