Gear shifter is locked in first. Hi/lo shifter is fine. Forward reverse works fine. Any ideas?

John Deere D is exactly right. You do not need to remove steering gear box to access gears. use a powerful flashlight and stout flat screwdriver and you will be able to get unstuck. I have not unstuck thousands but I have done a few.

It may also help to jack the back wheels off the ground and rotate them by hand to get the oil coating the gears and sliders. Then try working it free with a bar. Our 202 was stick and this helped.

Massey Ferguson 6 speed transmission: 3 speed with High Low Range


Getting the main shift lever unstuck
Pull your filler plug for the transmission look inside you will see a big gear. Find a level spot shut off the tractor. Push the clutch down & put the high low shifter in neutral to relieve any pressure that might be on the gears. With a long screwdriver or a small pry bar pry the big gear forward if it is hung in reverse pry it back if it is hung in first gear. If you happen to go to far it will go in the other gear. If hung in second or third gear you have to pry on the shift fork you can see through the filler hole. if hung in second pry the fork toward the front of the tractor. If hung in third pry the fork toward the back of the tractor. You need to get it in the center. You should be able to feel the detent balls pop in the grooves in the shift rail as you move the gear. Through the years I have probably unstuck at least a 1000 of them this way. It is a common problem on the Massey tractors after they get a little wear on them
