Ariens model 10965

Hello owners. I have an old Ariens Snow Blower(1970). Runs great except yesterday. At the end of the day, I could not shift the drive to any position. Stuck in 1st gear, and clutch would not disengage the machine. Parts look to be all connected. Just stuck in 1st and can't shift out. Any ideas would be great.

I'd tip it on its nose, pull of the belly pan and take a good look. I'm sure you just need to grease the shafts with some lithium spray and get everything freed up. I've had a dozen of that model do the same thing...just needed some TLC..don't forget to free up the control handle as well.
