My 555 versatille range selector is jammed. The last

Customer Question
My 555 versatille range...

My 555 versatille range selector is jammed. The last position was in low range I think or may have been in mid range.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?

I am not sure of serial number but I think it is about an 1980 555 versatile articulated tractor

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the equipment mechanic to know before I connect you?

The tractor seemed to jump out off gear. but it later would move forward with the range selector jammed
