There are several possibilities of what it might be. The linkage might be out of adjustment. Or the cam might be worn. And the trans lock not fully engaging. If the cam is worn, the control arm off the hydro can move on its own making neutral hard to find. A bigger bushing could be put in, or you could hook a light weight spring to hold it against the cam. A local mechanic told me that some brands come with it on from factory. That is how I fixed my floppy control arm. Adjusting the linkage is fairly easy , up by the neutralizer pedal there are adjusting nuts.

On the JD's with the same Sundstrand hydro there is a spring that holds the cam in the neutral notch. There is an adjuster that moves the cam follower to get it positioned at neutral. If it all isn't tight and moving freely you will get hydro creep when in neutral and/or jerky response to speed control inputs. If you have a manual it may tell you how to adjust it but inspect the linkage for slack. As said above the hole in the cam tends to wear. I solved that on my 314 by using a larger pin in the linkage that fit tight in the worn hole.

Park cable or at least thats what I call it. Mine was froze up just enough to allow it to pull the park lock pin out of the pinion drive gear but when I'd put it back in park it would not push the wire back through the cable housing, it would bend.
I had to take it off, lube it up, put one end in the vice and pull the housing, lube it, put the other end in the vice, pull the housing, lube it up, .................. repeat until it worked freely.

That sounds like an easy fix. It sure can be frustrating when the tractor wont stay put.
