Before you try anything if you can run the tractor with the range shifter in neutral crank it with the fuel cock closed and after it stops pull the stop lever out and leave it out if it will stay. You don't want it to accidentally crank while you are working on it. If necessary crack open the injector line nuts to make sure there is no fuel going to them.

I don't quite understand what you mean when you said the repaired shifter tighened the shifting up, but it is still stuck in gear. I need a more complete description of what is going on. Can you move the shifter in all four positions with the right range shifter in neutral or high or low?
Have you rocked the tractor back and forth with the range shifter in high or low and then tried the left hand shifter? I will have to check the Dexta with the shift cover that is off when it is not as cold and rainy. The rain quit, but it is still wet and co-cccooold. Looks cold and snowy where you are.

I will try to explain the best about what it is doing! When I'm driving the tractor in 1st and I go to shift into 3rd or reverse the tractor seems like it goes into the gear, but if you let out the clutch the tractor will stall! If you put the lever into the "neutral" position the tractor will still drive in 1st! You have to shift to 2nd, and sometimes even 3rd before the tractor will go into reverse and reverse actually function! So basically you have to shift through all of the gears most times before it will actually hit reverse.
