Range selector valve is leaking. Old "bat handle" knob is worn through, and too tall. Looks like something off one of Ed Roth's cartoon cars from the '60s! The 5/8-11 to 1/2-13 adapter they used adds another inch or so to it. Picked up a new-style Eaton-Fuller knob, with built-in range valve. Now, I'm making a drill jig to mount on top of the stick (after I cut it off) to allow precise drilling & tapping of the stick. I'm gonna cut the stick off, and drill & tap it to the 1/2-13 thread size on the new knob. Then, I'll put a long grade 8 set screw in the hole, and thread the knob on. Rather than screw the knob on and use jam nuts to lock it in place, I will use a washer of correct thickness to "index" the knob on the stick. That will be a little more work, but it will be VERY clean. I looked at the actual 15-speed knob. But, according to Fuller, you have to change the cover on the deep reduction slave valve on the transmission to make it work. Must be a little different logic to the air circuit. No matter. The hi-lo range is the important one to me. And, it is supposed to require no modifications. As soon as I get the various bits and pieces made, I'll try to document the whole process in pictures. I know, I suck at that! Always run short of time and forget to take the pictures! I'll try to do better on this one, Vinny! More pics to follow (we hope!)...
