I have just started to start work on the resto process, which means pushing it from my shed to the garage. Unfortunately I can't seem to get it into neutral. I jacked it up and both back wheels are turning in the opposite direction..any ideas? Two speed is in neutral position, select lever is in upper notch...need to move it before it gets cold and snowy..:wallbanging:

Make sure the disc brake isn't stuck on.

Did you try rocking the tractor will trying to shift into neutral? Sometimes that can help.

Thanks for your help guys, yes I did try rocking it. I guess Danial was right the disc brake was stuck on.
I managed to use a pry bar to knock the linkage and it's in the front of the garage now.
