There is a 16 G on e-bay that has the forward/reverse lever, not the foot pedal. Did they come both ways at the same time? Or did the earlier ones have the lever and the newer ones have the pedal? I thought the lever went out with the 8000 series tractors. Maybe somebody changed the hood and it is really a 8163. Just curious if anybody had any info. Thanks Ed.

The first year the G series had the lever and was also the first year for the new clutch system. I don't remember if the foot pedal was an option that year or came out the next year, I know the pedal made using a loader a lot eaiser, but you sure could burn up a clutch fast using the pedal.

Both 9/86 & 7/87 GRAVELY sales catalogs show Professional G-Series tractors w/the forward/reverse lever. The 7/88 catalog is the 1st appearance I find of the foot pedal.
