transmission trouble

Hello, Well, we got a simpicity 7010 for my wife and she was using is all day. We went to move it this evening, I put it into 2nd and let out the brake and the engine started to bog down. I let up and tried to shift into 1st but it wouldn't go up into 1st or 3rd (wouldn't go past half way between gears). Confused, I put it into neutral and let out the brake so I could inspect things... but it lurched forward. So I shut it down. I checked and when it's in 2nd or Reverse the transmission is locked. When it's in neutral it's in some forward gear. And I couldn't get it up into 1st or 3rd at all. Anyone had this problem? Is it possible for something to get misaligned with the shifter? Thanks in advance!

Sounds like its time for the "bent screwdriver" trick. Look at this link: "http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/portal_External.asp?LinkID=153&LinkName=Manual%20Transmission%20Stuck%20In%20or%20Between%20Gears&CatID=18&CatTitle=Transmissions&URL=http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/topic.asp?ARCHIVE=true&TOPIC_ID=11763&" Found it in, "Technical Tips & Articles, Got the $50 tractor home". Good luck,

Fixed! Thanks. Turns out a straight screwdriver works in a pinch if you're lucky :p And put some new belts on while I was at it.
