i have a 1960's jacobsen chief 1000 with a 3 speed transmission. today i went to go shift it and i could not find the gears its all sloppy like. after a while i found the gears very tricky to find but i can get them. i am supposed to pull in a tractor pull in a week so if you great people could help me fix the problem or lead me to the parts needed that would be so great thank you so much!

I would imagine your shifters rollpin is sheared. It is in the shift lever just where it goes into the tranny. Pull the shift boot back and see if there is a set screw to release the shifter and slide it out of the tranny. You should be able to see whats wrong and whats needed from there. I wouldn't recommend pulling it like that even though the tractor moves like its in gear it is likely only halfway in and could very easily break something when a load is put on it. Let us know how you get along.

Where's my manners? :toilethead:

WELCOME TO GTTALK!

If it is the rollpin, they are readily available from your local hardware store. Take your shifter with you so you can get one that fits tight. The rollpin serves as a hinge or pivot point for the shifter. GOOD LUCK!!

Welcome to the forum! I'm guessing the pin needs replaced also.

Here's a link to the parts manual for it:
