hang on a minute, a 1694 was replaced by an 885 ? next time you see mr farmer kick his shins , the mans gone quite mad  :-\

I deserve a numpty it was a DB 1690 and he only had her for 3 years

he got pxxxd off with the hydro shift she was second hand so who do you blame?? the owner before or the owner after  :'( :'(

ah a stretched cable on the 1690 then thats usually the problem , till the engine & gearbox warms up, the cable won't pull properly on the shift control.  knew of a 14 like that , spend 3 parts of an hour going super slow on the road , then just as you get into the field all gears decide to work & you go tearing off into the distance at light speed only to be told by the boss to slow down a bit  :-\
