Is there anyway to disengage the transmission on a Massey 12h so it can be moved easily?

Check in the Manuals Section. My Simplicity has a mechanism that I push down on to disengage the hydro. Good Luck, Rick

It has a  "free wheeling" valve that you turn, I think its on top of unit (been a while), looks like a nut with bar thru it

From the rear of the tractor, face forward and move to the left side footplate.  Look under the tunnel at the front of the wheel, you should see a "T" handle up at the top of the hydro unit, it faces towards the engine.  One end of the "T" is longer than the other.  Turn the handle 180 degrees or a half circle.  That should disengage the hydro.

As Howard says, and I believe that if the long end of the "Tee" handle is

pointing down, it's in freewheel.
