 1995 MF 231 (Poland Model)

The gear shifter is stuck in reverse on my MF 231. THe clutch seems to be working and I can engage the pedel to stop motian of the tractor. The hi - lo selector moves freely when clutch is engaged.. Has this happened to anyone before? and is this something that must be fixed by tearing down the tranny ?

I have not seen this on a MF before but other transmissions yes. In general not coming out of gear it is often a problem with the shifting forks mechanism. If there is an upper plate you many be able to remove the plate containing the shifter and determine what the problem is.

I imagine it isn't starting if it stuck in reverse. Still might some good the make sure the diff lock is released, put it into 2wd if it's not and push it a bit forward and backwards. The clutch probably would have to be in.

It's possible that the detend ball or some other linkage part is the problem. As Peters mentioned, checking out that possibility and a few others likely requires removing the TX top-cover. That would require a gasket and it'd best be with a repair manual handy. Safety switch parts can drop off the top cover into the TX on some models. It is possible for shift forks to get what I'd call out of coordination and they can lock a TX into gear until the forks are manually pulled around. A '53 Chevy I had used to lock itself into 2nd regularly, but I just had to pull on the external levers to get it released.
