Sorry, got so excited I forgot to ask if any tools are required e.g., must I remove the plate to access the lever, or is the lever exposed and for hand operation?

No tools aside from a wrench to remove the locking nut and turn the locking strap.

Rock the tractor back and forth. DO NOT force the disconnect mechanism.

Better yet, get the engine started and drive it where you want to take it.

First - there's nothing wrong with your rear end! Not sure what happened to your transmission . . . unless it was halfway between 9th and 10th and trying to apply both at the same time.

Do as Texas said. It should take an 11/16 wrench to remove the nut from the lockout strap. I often use a 12" adjustable end wrench to disengage and engage the traction disconnect rather than the lock strap. But if you do don't overpressure it.

I want to thank yawl for all your kind input. Turns out she died because the injector pump stopped supplying fuel! Wouldn't turn over with traction release, once I returned the lever, she turned over again. Plenty of good fuel, broke line downstream of filyet at pump inlet and had flow. Broke injector line, but get no flow either by gravity or when turning engine over in start position... Can see that fuel control lever turns swashplate shaft. Is it possible that tank foreign object (rust etc) might have starved pump, if so; is there any way to prime pump, or determine if connecting drive has failed?
