I have been working on my super 5.6 and need  a good close up photo of the linkage set up for differential lock if any of you guy's have one  and wouldn't mind posting.  I have a manual but it is hard to tell from the diagram .

Thanks

Hello Gentlemen, although I have visited this site many times to read and learn information, this will be my first post. I was happy to see a recent post to know someone still visited from time to time that can hopefully help me with some of the questions I might have.

 

I too have a super 575, like 1rustynut above, that has the locking differential just like the photos Alc posted. My cable works and the linkages works also, but I am not able to notice anything actually happening with the tractor itself that makes it easier to turn at the end of the rows. How can I check to see if this is actually working like it should.

 

Thanks in advance for any information you two guys, or others, can provide me.

Welcome to GTTalk ! I've been lucky to never having any problems with my differential lock so no help there I can tell you when it's off the wheels will turn indenpendley but once the lever is thrown there not complety lock but maybe 1/4 turn before full lock up ,from what I've read that's so you will be able to make slight adjustment while going down the garden rows .

   I never considered a differential lock on a DB. Years ago I had a DB with a 6" turning plow that I turned up my garden with. It was all I could do to turn it around at the end of the garden. Now you tell me some of them had a differential lock. I have to wonder if I was breaking my back for nothing. And I have no way of finding out because that tractor went away about 1990. Don

Alc, Thanks for your reply to my post! Your description of the 1/4 turn before full lock up is exactly what mine does. Although my cable and linkage is moving I am almost convinced now that the differential is not disengaging. Maybe someone on here will have experienced this and can provide some insight into it for me.

 

 

Secondtry, I certainly understand where you are coming from. Without it disengaging I have to walk briskly or almost jog to spin it around at the end of the row.
