The steering wheel I was able to free with a torch. The nut finally came off last weekend and today my friend Jon JB welded the steering wheel together for me. It works and I'm overall happy with the repair Vs buying a $90 steering wheel.
I got my wiring all tightened up and took her for a spin. Well sort of.
As you get to know me, you'll see that in almost every GT or item for that matter that I own, something is wrong in some way shape or form.
After priming the fuel line from sitting for so long, I got her running, when I put her in low gear, she took off in reverse.
Thankfully I planned for my misfortune and moved my F150 so I had a clear path to ride out of the garage. As I continued to ride the Case in reverse, everything felt fine except the F&R shifter. No matter what I did, I would continue to go in R.
When I came to a flat spot of land, I was able to take it out of Low, and she would idle fine. But still no Forward.
I was able to back her back into the garage and examine the linkage on the valve under the tractor. The valve on the drivers side isn't moving at all in or out. It seems to be stuck in one position, leading me to believe that it's in Reverse position currently.
Now, what can be done to correct this?
