Hi,
I just purchased a 68 John Deere 4020 power shift tractor. After I got it home and in my shop I disengaged the transmission lever on the left side of the tractor. After I rengaged it the tractor will not move. I took off the panel below the steering column and seams like the lever rotates a little but not enough to lift the linkage going into the top of the transmission. Do I try to disconnect the linkage and try to lift it manually? Please help.
