Ford 2600 draft control stuck

JusT bought a Ford 2600 gas. Thought I was pretty thorough in checking somethings on it but forgot to check the draft lever. Went to plow today and wouldn't you know it's seized in place. I'm a newbie at this, my first tractor and all.
Anyone have any suggestions? Positon lever/ hydrolics work fine. It's a 2 lever set up.

Before I pulled cover, I would definetly loosen the nut and friction disks on the lever and make sure that's not the problem.

Just a thought but if the dual lever control isn't used much it may be rusted and stuck to the friction disc on the outside.

It's been a whole day and you've had no replies.
We're not ignoring you, probably most folks, like me, don't have an answer for you.
I had a 3600 with the same problem. I never did fix it. Just used position control for the summer I owned the tractor and then sold it that fall.
I doubt it would be hard to fix. You will need to pull the lift cover and have a look see. Pulling the lift cover is no big deal but it's heavy so it helps to have a helper or a cherry picker to pull it. That draft handle is infrequently used so i suspect it's just dry and froze up for lack of lube. Do a bit of sleuthing. I'm sure you'll find the problem. Please post back with your results.
We are all learning here.
A top cover gasket should be available from this site but unfortunately I'm not finding it for you. Your local CNH dealer should have one in stock. You will need one so order it before you start.
Click on the link below for a diagram on that top cover. That is an outstanding small tractor.

A couple of thoughts about pulling the lift cover:
First, there is one - maybe 2 bolts under the block off cover under the seat. You may have a hydraulic valve there. That small cover (or valve)must come off to get at those bolts. Second, there are 4? bolts more in the center of the lift cover that hold the lift cylinder in place underneath. You will see them. Don't remove those. All the rest of the bolts around the perimeter of the cover must be removed. There's a dozen or more of them.
Those covers can be stuck on there pretty good. You will likely need to use a big pry bar to pop it loose. I use a 5 footer. When you replace the gasket just put it on dry. No goop, dope or pucky.

Today's Featured Article - The Ferguson System Principal An implement cutting through the soil at a certain depth say eight inches requires a certain force or draft to pull it. Obviously that draft will increase if the implement runs deeper than eight inches, and decrease if it runs shallower. Why not use that draft fact to control the depth of work automatically? The draft forces are ... [Read Article]
