    Posted thread sept 2009 looking for info regarding 9150 power shift transmission without any luck. Just asking again would anyone know if a service/repair manual is available for this transmission. It is in an old DRMCO (before champion) 740 grader. I have searched the Internet for 18 months without any success. Getting really desperate. I am prepared to pay for a copy of the transmission part of a manual or the whole manual. Any help really would be greatly appreciated.

    Sorry I havent replied sooner. Been having some Internet problems. A copy of the overhaul pages Is exactly what I have been looking for. If you could copy them and send them it would be really appreciated. Is it possible to send them electronically or I would be prepared to pay postage if that is easier for you. Once again thanks for the reply.

    The DRMCO days are way before my time...probably before I was even born. The only place I could direct you that may have some info is the Champion Antique Grader Club. http://www.championantiquegraderclub.ca

    They have some old manuals and some fellows that tinker on the old stuff.

    Hi mate. Not sure if this is still active, but I have a DRMCO 720, here in QLD, having a lot of trouble finding parts. Ideally I would love to find a wrecker with one, but new parts would be good too. Any ideas about who to talk to would be greatly appreciated.
