Hello All,

I borrowed an Oliver 550 / 588 tractor that I was using today and the 1-6 forward/drive gears stopped working. I checked the engine oil, coolant and gas before using it and all were brand new and full. I can shift into each forward gear but it won't move. The reverse gears still work R1, R2. I am looking for anyone that can help me with this, either by repairing in person or shedding light on what the issue might be. Please reach out day or night, I am in a pinch.

Thank you in advance!

Welcome OllieG. Sounds like you are in a bit of a pinch alright. I'm not familiar with these, but I'm curious as to how much play you have on the clutch, and did the failure happen quickly or did it happen gradually?

Could be that the gear shift is out of place and not connecting to the forward gears. You may have to see if the owner has a manual or whether he has encountered this issue before.... from what I've read, this is not uncommon with these tractors!
