Book Excerpt: Ford Tractor Repair Manual Series 2000, 3000, 4000
"SELECT-O-SPEED" (10-SPEED) TRANSMSSION
The "Select-O-Speed" transmission is a planetary gear drive unit providing ten forward and two reverse speeds. Desired gear ratio is selected by moving a control lever and starting, stopping or changing gear ratios is accomplished without operation of a conventional clutch.
A foot-operated feathering valve is provided for interrupting the gear train in case of emergency or for close maneuvering such as the hitching or unhitching of implements.
On models 2000, 3000 and 4000, the "Select-O-Speed" transmission is available with three PTO options; it is available without a PTO, with a single speed 540 RPM PTO or with a two speed 540-1000 RPM PTO which also incorporates a ground drive speed PTO.
For better understanding of the operation of the "Select-O-Speed" transmission, fundamental operating principles of a planetary gear system are outlined in following paragraphs 219 through 226.
The right repair manual for your tractor is an essential tool you cannot do without.
I bought the Ford 3000 Tractor manual FO-31 since I recently purchased this tractor and sure enough, right away had to put it to use. I am not a mechanic and rarely work on motorized vehicles, so when I do, I have to use the best tech manual I can get my hands on. So this was actually the first time I had to take a system apart and put back together.
This manual was very helpful in step by step disassembly with detailed views of how the parts all fit in sequence. So all I had to do was look at the book and remove as instructed, go buy the right replacement parts and reassemble via the book again. My power take-off shaft was sheared so because of this manual I got to learn all about power take-off system and how to take apart and reassemble and it now works great, but I have to get out the manual again due to an ignition problem therefore it will be put to use again. Thanks Ford IandT guys!
