||I had a similiar problem with a M-F 203 industrial (1964). the first time I spent half a day dismanteling the steering etc. turns out a long screwdriver polked through the access hole next to the gearshift will do the trick. one of the two larger gears in view needs to be moved. after several times it seems you cannot make things worth, I have pried and moved one gear or the other and it solved the problem. the actual problem seems to be a jam in the linkage of the gearshift which is evident when taking the steering off. a friend said he has a similiar problem when the hydraulic fluid gets too low.
||I have a 150 and got it stuck in low fourth while bushhogging. My dad an old farmer said he has had similar problems. He took the gear shift out of the deck and then with a long screwdriver flipped the gear back into neutral. He says to prevent this from happening again, its best to take the high-low shifter out of gear first if you think you might have the transmission in a bind. Its worked for me.
