    If you look at the area arround the shifter you will see 4 bolts. Each of these bolts has a spring and a ball under it. These are detents. They hold it in gear. Sontimes the balls get wore and become stuck.Remove one bolt at a time and check the shifter. When you find the one that frees the shifter remove the spring and ball with a magnet and inspect the ball for wear.

    Is it stuck while the tractor is shut off?
