if its the 350 or 350B grease may be leaking from the final drive into the steering clutch pack, lubricating the clutches so they don't work. Unbolt the square plate with 4 bolts underneath the seat & look at the bottom with a strong flashlight. If you see grease, new seals to stop the leak & new clutches are in order.

If it's as "2x4" suggests and you need to get it out of the field & back to the shop, then here's a trick that will at least get it back in: (1) Put about 1 oz. of Brake Fluid into the gear oil in the final drive to swell the seals, (2) Thicken the gear oil in the final drive with "Motor Honey", (3) Flush out the clutch pack with Tetrachloroethylene - if that's not available you can use either Acetone or Methyl Ethyl Keytone. Do NOT leave the solvent in the clutch pack for more than a minute or two, as it will eat up the seals. Make certain that you flush all of the solvent vapors out of the clutch pack. - This trick DOES work, I've done it to get a machine back into the shop.

Forgot to mention, this trick is NOT a fast fix! After you add the Brake Fluid you need to run the machine back & forth to mix the fluids and then let it sit overnight so the seals can swell. The add the Motor Honey to the gear oil & run it back & forth a few times to get it mixed & thicken it. Then flush with your solvent. - I did this on a CAT D-9 that was in swampy ground & we couldn't get a Low-Boy anywhere near it.
