are determined by engine rpm and the shift control position.
Throttle valve control, which interconnects with the engine throttle and gear shift selector. With engine
operating and shift control in neutral position, the transmission throttle valve is locked out. When gear shift
selector is in a forward or reverse gear, the transmission throttle valve is locked in, allowing transfer of
power from the transfer assembly into the transmission.

wheel applies brakes to track on inside of turn. For example, during a left turn the brake is applied to the
left drive output. During a right turn the brake is applied to the right drive output.
