Most likely the brake pedal shaft and the clutch pedal pivot is rusted together. This is a common problem on these machines. I had to drill my brake shaft out on a lathe and make a new one. I put a grease fitting in the end of the new shaft and drilled to get grease into the clutch pedal/brake shaft area. Requires removal of the torque tube to free the shafts unless you get lucky with generous amounts of your favorite penetrate and working the pedals if you can get movement.

The pedals sticking together is a common thing on those.I have a 420 that I couldn't get them freed up on,so I unhooked the rod.I can stop by pulling both levers back at the same time.In real life it is something I seldom have to do.If the left side doesn't power around when you pull the right lever,you have slipping left clutches.If it was only the brake hanging up it would bog down and at least try to turn.Steering clutches are really kind of simple on those machines.When I worked at the JD dealer I was the youngest guy there,so I was the crawler guy.Most of the times those steering clutches can be taken apart,cleaned,blasted,lubed,reassembled and adjusted without buying a lot of parts.
