Well I identified the brake cans, I think the entire drive train and brakes were updated when they did the engine. The transmission is an eaton!

After identifying the brakes I learned how to manually crank them released and did so. So now I have it rolling fine! I have not figured out what's wrong with the airshift mechanism yet but I will!

I have arranged a tow for the morning at 250 an hour flat rate. Uggh. Monies suck.

But it's the safest way to get it home where I can tear into it and begin the restoration

Well I got it home!! Safe and sound. I've removed the airshift mechanism and a pto port cover so I can have an uninhibited view of the transmission I've also pulled the driveshaft. While I can put all three shifting forks in the neutral position and shift them in a manner that appears normal to me, it never seems to enter neutral. It is dark now and I am tired so I will have to play more tomorrow. I suspect there is an issue with the transmission itself but I don't think it's anything major or irreparable. In fact I this not its something very simple . I have a manual for the specific model of transmission on the way from eBay, 20 buckaroos.
