Well here is the shock, or the proper term, hydrostatic damper. Almost all the John Deere hydros incorporate a hydrostatic shock to dampen the transitions between speed changes, and forward and reverse. They work well, but after 26 years, or tons of hours, just like any gas shock, they can wear out. Adam
Adam, Does that one return to center or just act as a dampener.
I am looking for 2 that return to center like the ones on a Case 1835B skid steer only a bit smaller.

Texas deere and horse, that is what I thought, I have a 1970 140 H1 that doesn't have the damper, I also have a 1972 140 H1 and it does not have a damper either. My 1981 317 has the same transmission as my 1972 140 and it has a damper. I think Deere went to a damper when they moved the hydrostatic control lever to the dash. Adam

Mine is a bit vicious going reverse to forwards.

Better add it to the to-do list.
I need to do some work on the drive anyway, the pedal for reverse needs adjusting as it doesnt stick up from the floor high enough to get full speed in reverse. If you pull up on the forwards ledal it will work fine though. Must be just an adjustment.
Its all very tight underneath it though.
