    Default South bend lathe won't change speeds

    I get no change in speeds between how and low, on my south bend fourteen. doesn't seem to be electrical. increase and decrease still work just find but just seems to be stuck in low speed settings. Thinking the problem is in the gearbox but before I got though all the trouble of tearing that apart if anyone has anything for me to try I would be glad to give it a shot. thank you.

    The high/low shifter is mechanical.
    Check the shifter first (pin, set screw, etc.)

    If that doesn't do it. Maybe some pics of your set up and switch, and what you got going on. Is it using a drum switch ?
