Sorry for the late response, I have been out of town for a few days! But see link nelow. # 31 is the release rod. you need t get to the lever on top of the transmission , that rod attaches to, usually the lever sticks from lack of use, use some penetrating oil and work the lever back and forth using a crescent wrench or other tool to move it. Free it up, and that should get transmission back into gear!
