Wally, Welcome to the club. Always good to have another PA member. I am not familiar with the 300 series, but if I am understanding your problem, your clutch/brake pedal is locked down. There should be a slot in the right side of the frame with a "L" shaped handle. That is the brake lock and also de-clutches the hydro so the tractor will stay in one place. The little handle tightens a collar on a brake rod and my be frozen from rust if the tractor has been sitting. There is a right hand thread on this handle so you would need to turn it counter-clockwise to release the brake. You could hit it with some rust buster and tap the handle with a small hammer. It might release. If the engine is not running you will need to release the hydro to move it by hand. I believe that you have a Vickers hydro and the release lever is on the rear by the right wheel. Turn it towards the tire. Good luck, Jim

Operators and parts list manuals are available. The service manual is no longer available for free download but think you can purchase it from Simplicity. AC 312H = MF# 1600048 http://www.simplicitymfg.com/manuals/index.cfm?rd=1
