  • NAA Auxilliary transmission
  • Hello,

    Has anyone ever seen a Sherman Auxilliary transmission with the lever on the right side of the tractor? There is a NAA 1953 Jubilee with the auxiliary transmission with the lever ion the right that seems to be a step up. The lever is kind of straight up like the sherman in the left side of my 9N as oppossed to the Hupp lever on the right side of my NAA that is more horizontal with the tractor. It is peculiar, to see this, I am wondering what model of this transmission this could be.
    Any clues?

    Thanks,

    Francois

  • It will shift the same way as a step up or down sherman on the left side of the tractor. If tractor runs just pull back the handle to access sherman up or down gears

  • I got to thinking that possibly...just possibly...that F&T was still in business and because of the tractor configuration, had to make a handle like that. Just a thought.

  • I have already responded to one of your post on facebook. If you don't believe me pop your steering box off and have a looks see. I would be surprised if you find anything else but a sherman step up. Does the tractor not run drive?

  • Thanks Kirk! I did not see your post on FB. So you have seen Sherman’s with the handle on the right side of the tractor?

  • I have an NAA with a Sherman and my son and I are currently installing a 3 speed Hupp in his NAA. I have a 9N with a F&T trans and the lever is on the right and is verticle. I have another F&T waiting for a candidate instulation. Post a picture so that we can see what you have.

  • Bruce, I do not do Facebook either. But, you can copy his photo string and paste it to your browser then enter. When done, just close it.

  • Thank you. I did copy/paste the link but AO'ell is a pita. I finally went to another server and found it.
    Hupp with a Sherman handle...?
    I an not impressed with the Hupp handle on her Fergy but the proximity of it to the Howard handle works fairly well.

  • Re: NAA Auxilliary transmission link to photo
  • As I mentioned to Kirk NJ, I got to wondering if it is possibly an F&T transmission.
    About the time I think I seen it all, I AIN'T! LOL

  • Re: NAA Auxilliary transmission link to photo
  • Wow! That is unlike anything that I have ever seen. The Hupp lever, like you said, is horizontal along side of the transmission. And, most of us know what the Sherman Combination trans and the Sherman Step up or Step down look like on the other side of the tractor.
    That is definetly a pre-transmisison unlike Howard or Auburn transmissions.
    I'm wondering if maybe it was removed from some other application, or if the tractor was configured as a power unit for a special industrial or agricultural application and converted back to a utility tractor.
    I sure hope someone else can jump in here. Learning something new.

  • Good morning John, When installing a sherman step up or step down in the NAA or later models because of the location of the whole it's into the starter bump on the left side on the later models, some will alter the handle and others will reverse the handle to come out the opposite side of the tractor which I believe was done here. This is the reason you don't see many step up or downs in the later model and with the combos in full swing at that time why would you put in anything else.

  • I have a Sherman two speed, overdrive only in a 641 SN 4728 with the shifter on the left. Had to reshape the handle.

  • Good morning Kirk. I am going to take some pictures of the 2 NAA transmissions that we have, one is a Sherman and one is a Hupp. My e-mail is open and I'll send them to you.

  • Hello John,

    Thanks for your response. I am very intrigued by this, and since the tractor has been licensed in Quebec and purchaased fro a Quebec dealer, I cannot think of any special pre transmission ever invented. The previous owner insists his father in law bought a “Sherman”.

    I wish I could figure out how to get the picture on the site.

    Have a good day!

    Francois
