I soaked the engine (from the plugs) with diesel but does not want to loosen up.
I am debating where to take the whole angine out or just the head to do valves and inspect.
The transmission-engine shaft seems to free-wheel. Does it mean that something is wrong at the backengine coupling? How is that connected?
I would expect that would be a "hard" coupling meaning "connected" at all times to the back of the crankshaft.
Any iddeas?

I do not get it. If the clutch pedal is released (meaning no one is holding-it is not dis-engaged by steping on the pedal), with the transmission in neutral the interconnecting shaft from engine to trany should be locked to the crankshaft.
Now since I am not holding the clutch pedal down and the shaft is free-wheeling (trany is in neutral) then is the clutch broken? or stuck with the clutch plate-engine flywheel not pressing on the friction disk?

my best guess would be the center of the clutch is tore out I"m sure theres one apart in the parts yard I'll have a look and see if I can get a couple pictures to explain it better

one pic of the sprockets on a 30 for the chain coupling the chain has been robbed for another tractor. to pull the engine just remove the chain and take bell housing and shaft with the engine. other pic is bell housing with shaft still in it off a 44 special but same idea as the 30

Bear: Thanks a bunch, finally got it out. Broken clutch disk, rust everywhere and my vision no too good to see that the oil pan can get on the way in the fronts.
Thanks again.taking those picture took time....I appreciate it!,
