Howdy dvto2, welcome to the forum.

I would get a big spray can of penetrating oil and spray everything associated with the shift linkage all the way to the transmission. Spray several times per day till it loosens up.

You might consider flooding the transmission with the correct fluid to lubricate components above the normal fluid level internally. Do not operate it in this overfilled condition. Drain the excess fluid off before operating once the shift mechanism frees up.

What's thre correct fluid and procedure for changing it?

A T-10 has a standard gearshift transmission, 6 forward and 2 reverse (3x1 + hi/lo). You should be able to pull the top cover off of the transmission and see what's stuck. Probably rusted internally.

I never knew this had a high low shift, is that this lever? It has never worked and I was always stuck in low, I think.

Definitely a T 10, as I should have noticed.

It looks to me like the transmission splits. I don't see how you would take the top off. This would take quite a bit of disassembly.

I do have the deck. I just never used it cause I mow with a kubota bx. I just use the tiller on the Homelite, which works well.

Just curious if anyone has cracked open one of these transmissions? How hard is it to get back together?
