    Why does my NP 205 only seem to have 3 positions? Being 4HI / Neutral / 4LO? Is this a common pattern for TH400/NP205's? My TH350 had a different pattern being bottom to top: 4HI / 2HI / N / 4LO...

    Am I just loosing my mind?

    Does anyone else smell BFGs burning???

    Every 205 I've owned was 4Hi, 2Hi, N, 4Lo when shifting back to front.

    4 Hi and 2 Hi are sometimes hard to tell apart when shifting. I have moved the shifter too far on several occasion and was in 4 Hi when I thought I was in 2 Hi, but it is there.

    If you didn't build it yourself, how can you call it yours.......?

    Took mine for a quick spin last night and noticed that it's VERY easy to shift between 2Hi and 4Hi. Perhaps you're just not feeling that slight click between the two... [​IMG]
