Jubliee shifter repairs?
It seems that the shift tower on the Jubilee has seen better days. I could not get it to shift into 1st or third. Finally popped the boot and found a elongated slot/hole and nothing engaging it. Pin looks to be completely worn away.
By holding the shift lever straight, with both hands, I could get it to shift into those gears with no problem.
Any suggestions of how you may have repaired one would be helpful.
I have not taken the cover off yet. Looks like weld up the slot and install an new pin through the shifter ball?

Might be time to visit a tractor salvage yard for a replacement Chris. I've not had that problem on any of the Fords yet....is that just a rusted up and broken roll-pin or is it a stub built onto the shifter? If its a stub, I'd consider grinding it flat, drilling and tapping 1/4" (or 5/16") threads and stick in a grade 8 bolt then cut off the head.... Of course use some good thread locker.

You guys are right. I believe this needs a new cross pin through the ball portion of the shift lever. Next day or so I am going to take the cover off and remove the shifter lever and remove the old pin. I was thinking a roll pin may work too. Friend found information on a solid pin with a knurl that is the correct replacement pin.
I was worried that I had a problem inside the case in the gears. Just one of those things that gets worn after 60 years of use
