Thanks for the reply. The first thing I tried to do was remove the transmission cover but the problem is that it won't come off. The shift rod is stuck in the gates in whatever combination of gears (I think 1 and 2) it is in so the cover only come sup maybe 1/4" before it is trapped by the balls on the bottom of the shift rod. I can peer through the fill hole and move the cover side to side slightly, but other than one shift gate I can move with a screwdriver that doesn't help anything, I can't get at the rest.
Having tried rocking it back and forth with no success, I am considering trying to pull the tractor backwards to relieve whatever stress it is in.
