Stuck shifter and four wheel  
  Started at Wed May 25 02:33:52 2016
I am not very good with computers and I tried to answer the guys that replied to my question and looks like I just replied to my own message so I have to post again. Renz said I was to put it in 5th, speed up and drop the clutch and brake at same time. I know I am really dumb, but does drop the clutch mean depress it or let it out? I tried what I thought was correct but did not work. Four wheel shifter is also stuck, it is up but I do not know if that is in four wheel or two wheel. Mike said to back up.
Is it okay to disc in high range? Some have said not to, I will burn something out.
This is a first for me, I am used to gasoline tractors. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I was hoping there may be some linkage adjustment I could do

Yes, speed up and push brake and clutch pedal at the same time whilst shifting the range or 4wd. To get enough speed to lock the rear wheels when braking, you need to be in 5th when in low range. It will un wind the 4wd driveline.

Discing is generally done in 3rd gear high range. Both ranges can take full engine power, it is not like a 4wd pickup.

I used low range only to deep cultivate in 5th low, because it is just between 1st and 2nd of high range.

Be sure to disengage 4wd on hard surfaces or it will eat its front tires.

its almost impossible to shift hi low range when 4wd is engaged for these tractors, twist the 4wd lever and pull it up and lock it by twisting it forward, you should have the feeling of stretching a spring when pulling it up. then drive the tractor and slam hard on the brakes dont use the clutch just slam on the brakes going forward. it will pop out of 4wd by the help of a spring in the lever. then you should be able to shift the hi low range easily. this procedure is what i do with my 6340 when this happens. if you have a loader it also helps lifting the front wheels of the ground to get the 4wd to disengage.

put it in gear 1 or 2 and try rocking it in reverse while you try to shift.

Maybe it needs some WD40 too, on the lever shaft
