Well, this should be fairly simple, BUT I had to make all 6 hanger brackets- 2 front guide brackets- redo a lift rack assembly off an old D4-10 and fab lift arm to rear sleave hitch ( which took about 10 tries to get correct length).

Well it works fine ! A big help from Scott sending pics and measurments. With that out of the way, does anyone know how to  desensify the neutral position on a HD-12.  Readjusted linkage (same) backed out dump valve (nothing) . From pics you can see I fab a NO-GO tab which helps, but move it .003 either way and your in motion. That thing will run over ya if you dont watch it !! Any ideas would be great. Thanks.  Here are some pics.

Looking mighty good Burl!! I am with you finding the touchy neutral position. I was hoping you were going to figure it out and teach us!

That looks great and it's good to hear from you again!

That is a very nice looking GT. Thanks for the photos!

 

I have a Wheel Horse C-160 (hydro) and it likes to start creeping forwards sometimes.

When I was adjusting the carb and running it wide open, I put a jack under the rear-end and lifted the wheels "just in case"!

My HD-12 is pretty easy to find & stay in neutral.  I'll take a look at mine to see if I can help.

Burl, back at the hydro, where the control plate is, there is a detent system to help find & hold neutral.  I've not had mine apart to see first hand, but I figure the end of the detent should have a round point to fit into the groove in the plate.  It could be the pin is worn flat, or more likely the plate is worn to where there isn't any defined "notch" left for it to center into.  If it's the plate worn, you could build it back up with weld, then grind a nice new "V" slot into it.  I can definitely feel through the handle when my detent finds the neutral detent groove.

Dan ,you are spot on with your findings. I can find and hold the nuetral position , but you as much as touch the handle your gone. Detent and ball are  all new. Adjusted tighter and looser till I wore out a good allen wrench. I took ALL linkage off till I only had shaft sticking out. Put

wrench on shaft and watch it and same results. Its either IN or OUT with a whisper of the breath !!! Maybe thats just how sensetive they are. Be nice if it could travel at least a 1/32 before engaging . There is -O- travel. Thanks for ck yours. I will keep playing with it and see if I can get it to be a little sloppier. Thats pretty sad when a guy wants something looser (worn out) to be happy. Thanks

Burl, the shaft the shift handle connects to connects to the lever on it's other end that the control rod hooks into.  There are 2 or 3 holes where you can adjust sensitivity there.  Putting the rod into the hole nearest the shaft will make it less sensitive by requiring more handle movement for the same speed change.  If you are in the outermost hole, it will make it tempermental.

Dan- My old ditch dog only has 2 holes. Already in top position. Looked in parts manual and pic shows 3 holes. I took assmb off and drilled 2 more holes on top of them (just in case) . Put it back together , adjusted linkage and BAM !! Really helped ! Might punch another hole even higher, plenty of room. Thanks for getting me going in right direction. I can live with it now. Scott- this improves (  touchy ) enough to leave machine with it running. Thanks for tip Dan !
