I have a cub cadet 1974 129
I cannot seem to shift it into forward or reverse. The handle was a little loose so I tightened up the set screw so it is nice and tight. I pulled off the inspection plate above the linkage, I do not see anything jamming up. The tractor seems to be in neutral, when I start it it does not move.
I did drive and mow with this tractor a few days ago. It seemed like the handle was a little sloppy then and 1 time it did not go into reverse, but I moved the handle around and it worked.
Now I cannot get it into forward or reverse.
Does the tractor have to be started to move this lever?
Does anyone have any idea of where I should start.
I did check the hydraulic level, it did not pour out the filler plug but I see it on my little finger when I stick it in.
Here is a short video.
