Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2016: Another transmission question

I have adjusted the low band so the peddle stops about 1" -1.5" from the floor, adjusted the neutral linkage as best as I could, according to the book, considering the wear it has in the peddle hole where the linkage goes through, and since I was seeing a slight amount of slip in hi I adjusted the clutch plates up 1/2 turn. Everything is now working a lot better, except now my neutral position when using the peddle is very short. There is a very short spot where it is actually in neutral. Slightly farther down and the low band is wanting to start to engauge and slightly up and high wants to start to engauge. So is this normal or do I need to readjust something? How much travel should the peddle have, as you push it down, from where it actually goes into neutral and where the low band starts to engauge? Thanks

You might be able to adjust the low pedal a little further down to get a slightly wider neutral range, but don't go too far. After you adjust it down a bit, have a helper press the low pedal down hard while you watch the low speed linkage. If the linkage tries to go "over center", it can cause the low pedal to stick to the floor, locking you in low gear.

If you don't have enough adjustment left, you can try fabricating a longer low speed link, as discussed in this thread:

You can adjust to a "lost neutral position" where your transmission will always be in high or low and starting the engine is almost impossible.

Loosen the low band a little for a wider neutral zone.

Then the link may also need a slight adjustment.
