My old Kubota L225DT won't go into 1st or 3rd; 5th or 7th. Works fine in Reverse, and in 2nd/6th and 4th/8th. I have been using it for the past few years like this, but I have the tractor split for a new Clutch, so was wondering if I could get some advice / suggestions on how to fix the shifting problem as long as it is already split. Thanks in advance.

Howdy Stephen, welcome to the tractor forum.

You may have bent shifting forks?? Pull the cover off of the transmission and have a look.

Thanks BigT,

I pulled the cover and the forks and gears look fine. However, only 2 of the 3 original springs that hold down the balls on the shifter rods were there. The 3rd had a smaller, really weak spring installed. My wife had the reverse gear replaced a few years back when I was working overseas, so the local shade tree mechanic must have lost one and replaced it with the weak spring; and that has slowly lost it's "spring" till it pushes down on the ball hardly at all. Could that issue cause the problem? It was the left-most spring as you face forward (as if sitting in the seat).
