Take it off and soak it in your favorite penetrating solution. Give it a couple of days.  Good luck.

Thanks.

The spool valve that is "frozen" is on a CC 1650 with front hydraulics.

I can't move either lever.

Here is a picture of a similar valve.

Linkage is connected to spools on lower left.

Disconnect the links between the levers and the valves. It happened to me several years ago that the levers siezed on their pivot shaft and couldn't move. I used PB Blaster and then heat to get them apart. Sanded every working surface bright and greased it. It has worked fine since. There was no problem in the valves themselves. Try the same thing. Make sure the levers and links are working freely before working on the valve body. Let us know how you progress. Good Luck, Rick
