Re: (ET) speed problems

What is the serial number of your I-5 ? If it contains  DA or EA, or 
this is likely normal. The 2 AH relay will not close, to allow the third
speed contactor to pick up, if armature current is determined to be too
great. If you are the only user of the tractor, and drive 'sensibly', this
feature is easily defeated. The logic behind this is to limit armature
current, to prevent the release of great smoke from the armature, if you 
in a hurry and really crowd the throttle.
