I have 2 f-2's one is a hydro the other direct drive. The trans on the hydro either needs a rebuild or is toast,as it makes a lot of crunchy noises on the high side. I assume there is no way I can swap trannys as the hydro has no reverse. How hard is it to repair/replace the transmission ? Are they hard to find and do they cost less than a scrapper combine that's been messed up ? Any thoughts would be appreciated. Got a feeling crawling under one of these beasts is not a pleasant experience.

Where do you live? I might be able to point you to a dealer that can help you.

I haven't talked to the local dealers yet. I'm only 1 1/2 hrs. South of Worthingtons in St. Johns MI. I do most if not all the work on these beasts, don't know if I can afford the labor rates, and hauling it would add to the costs.

There's lots of those combines around, so finding what you need shouldn't be a problem.

As far as crawling around under the machine- you're right. It's not fun, but not terrible. It depends on how old you are! I was a lot younger the last time I did it.

We had a floor jack under the tranny, and a come along on the input pulley to balance it.

Call B&G Equipment in Paris TN. Talk to Tim. He can give you some pointers and may have a spare transmission for you.

Might be a good idea to remove one drive wheel...makes crawling around under there easier. I use large blocks I made by bolting together 4 pieces of 5x6 square post material, 16 inches long. Gives me heights of 10, 12, 16 inches, depending how they are turned. Very sturdy blocking.
