530 differential lock getting stuck

How is a differential lock on a 530 supposed to work? If I step the pedal down the rear end locks as it should, but I have to use a pipe wrench to disengage it! I recently had the brake apart and the large spring is still inside. Tractor sat outside the last year or two so could it just be rusty? Something else to look into? Is it supposed to disengage by stepping on the brakes?

The pedal shaft should rotate freely, so it can release.
If you are turning a bit there is still pressure against the the locking collar, since the rear wheels are turning different speeds when turning. To get it to release you have to turn the steering wheel back, or give one of the brake pedals a brisk kick to free it.

Loren, nothing short of a good tug on the pedal or the other day using a small pipe wrench will disengage it. Maybe I will take it apart and lube it up.

Today's Featured Article - Tractor Implements and Their Use - by Curtis Von Fange. Dad was raised during the depression years of the thirties. As a kid he worked part time on a farm in Kansas doing many of the manual chores. Some of the more successful farmers of that day had a new time saving device called a tractor. It increased the farm productivity and, in general, made life easier because more work could be done with this 'mechanical beast'. My dad dreamed that some day he would have his own tractor with every implement he could get. When he reached his early sixties ... [Read Article]
