I'm not sure I know what you mean about a washer. I really have not gotten into the A2 that far....thank GOD.
From my understanding, which is limited to disassembly and reassembly of the T-138 out of my M817 (not a T113, the center gear shaft wedges at a low angle (even lower in the T-113, forcing the gears apart, breaking their shaft mounts in the case. I could see how that could happen, even in the T-138 under extreme reversing torque.
Not possible. I drive too far onto my soft dirt when filling a hole (backing onto the pile) and need it in muck for both backing and then especially forward when loaded. Loads of the muck are a one shot deal, like working on top of a bowl of jello. If my fuel was turned up some, it might do better getting out. If I'm not in low range to begin with backing in, getting it into low can be difficult with a load.How about just not using low in reverse? With the 10:1 reverse trans ratio, I don't see low + reverse being needed.
