The fingers on the throwout collar have gone over center. To correct you will have to get bat behind the throwout collar and push the collar far enough , that the clutch shaft and fingers can be rotated back behind the collar.
This is easier said than done, it will take two people, one to push the clutch which will be hard to push, and one to rotate the clutch shaft back. It can be done through the hole. You know the alternative, split the tractor!
If you get it done, then make a stop for the clutch, so it will not go too far.
What is the best way to push in the clutch? Obviously the foot lever cannot be used, so is there somehow through the inspection hole to get ahold of the clutch? If so, how is the best way to go about doing this? XXXXXXX
A long . straight bar, that will go behind the throwout collar. The bar can then be used to push against the clutch, same action as foot pushing on the throwout collar to release the clutch. Get light and look for the throwout collar and where you have to reach.
I believe I have everything I need - you can close out my question.
(Note: The reason I stated "poor service" was that I received an email yesterday that said the second part of my question had been answered. But, when I connected to the link provided in this email yesterday, there was nothing written that answered my second question. With this current email you sent me today, I finally am able to see the response to my second question. So, Curtis B did answer what I needed to know. (Please relay this to him.) The "poor service" was in response me not being able to see his answer to my second question - obviously a website issue.)
Yes, you can go ahead and change Curtis' rating.
