Was told there is a way to disengage the transmission on a non running select-O-matic so it can be towed. Can someone tell me how to do this? Thanks, Emery.

Never heard of a select-o-matic. Maybe you are thinking of a Select-o- Speed. If so, you want the traction disconnect which is by your left heel. It looks something like a a sheet metal tab stuck on the end of a round shaft just barely sticking out of the case. The sheet metal part is the handle, you remove the bolt and then you can turn the shaft about 60 degrees clockwise and your traction is disconnected.

On the side of the transmission housing is the traction disconnect which will move a sliding coupler between the trans. output shaft and rear axle to allow tractor to be towed, roll freely and do some diagnostics .On 1965 and newer tractors it is just ahead of the differential lock pedal. On pre 1965 the lever is on the left side .

might add two things; make sure wheels are chocked front and rear as some models are not equipped with a parking brake and tractor is subject to rolling when disconnected. locate the lever, unbolt it and reverse it so the lever is facing away from the tractor and then reattach it. you may have to rock the tractor a little while trying to disconnect in order to move the coupler. make that three things, on some occasions the disconnect lever mechanism inside the housing may come out of its engagement, if so you can drain some transmission fluid out, remove the side plate and reach in and manually slide the coupler.

Hi Emery. As others have illuded to, it depends on the model of your Select-0-Speed. It's not quite as generic as has been described, however.

Pre 65 01 and 000 series tractorsup to 4000, have the strap on the left side with a retainer nut. It's located by the hydraulic dipstick on the round inspection cover.

6000 and 6000 Commander, have it on the left side as well. Theirs is merely a two position detent lever near the axle housing.

65 and later 000 series have a two position detent lever on the right side.
