416 hydro release

It shouldn't take excessive force to move. If you can't rock the tractor a bit and get it to move left or right don't force it...bad things happen (I found this out the hard way).

It's been a while since I had the problem (many years).

I ended up splitting the transmission case to fix the problem. I broke the shift stem with the excessive force and while I was in there used steel wool to clean up the shift rail (I think)to get things moving again.

I think if these sit for a long time with no movement there's no gear oil lubricating all of the parts and rust / corrosion an set in.

It's been a long time but I think this was the problem and the fix.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
