hey all i got to mow my lawn for the first time with my new to me 707 . while mowing it didn't seem to stay in contact with the ground . i just thought it had a solid frame . but it was bugging so i got down under and i see were its suppose to pivot. I've heated it pb blasted it and tried to grease it with no luck getting it to move. its not rusted i can see clean metal i think the the old grease is like cement in there. any ideas on how to get it to break loose and how for should it move when it does pivot

The pivots can be a real bugger. You might have to disassemble it so you can get at it with more then you thought heat. I don't think the grease cemented itself to the parts. After more heat you'll have to try and roll it back and forth to free up the rust. The side to side roll isn't alot, maybe 10 degrees each way from a vertical center, however if that does not move, stress cracks will show up on transmission side plates.
