Over in the other thread, you said it goes into reverse when you hit the brake? It sounds like the nut for reverse need adjusting. Here is page 20 of the FF18 Owners manual. The items outlined are the shifter adjustments.

Item 96 is the nut for reverse speed. Back it off a round. Do not turn the bolt doing this, as it will change the forward adjustment. Just don't back it off too much or your reverse speed will suffer.

Glad to hear its home, Willie. What does FF stand for? Fast Forward? French Fry? Friggen Furd??

I'm glad this all came together for you, and hope you

enjoy the new ride.

 

I hadn't noticed it before, but the front end does look like a

smiley face. :D

Checking out some bling for yours already? That one looks pretty sharp even with the hole in the hood.

I'm not sure if that is a smiley face or if that tractor is about to take a big bite out of whatever is in front of it!! :oh_shucks:  :biting_nails:
