Hello. I just brought home a 1955 Ford 650 (5 speed). I am very excited. It is my first tractor and is in great shape. It is difficult for me to understand how to shift the gears though. When you’re in a gear and push the clutch down, how do you get it back to neutral? I had no problem moving it back-and-forth from one gear to another on a certain level (e.g., into reverse and 3rd on the “up” level), but when I wanted to drop a level (e.g. to middle or down) or simply put into neutral, it wasn’t so easy. I could finally get it there after pushing, pulling and finagling with it – but I never really understood what I did to get it there. I feel like it should’ve been easier than that. What am I missing? Thank you! (I know this is a dumb question by the way, but I have nowhere else to turn.)
