D8l dozer shifting problem

Aug 21, 2023
Hi guys, I have just started restoring a D8l 53y1980. I hope to put her to work land clearing. Biggest problem today is the tractor will shift all forward gears no problem and will shift all reverse gears when cold ( about 10 mins) after this, trans will shift into reverse only when shifting to 3rd and back down to 1st gear reverse. All forward gears work as they should. Just started working on this tractor. I have pdf service manual. If you guys have link to a better one that would help. Thanks
