I do not have a diagram of your machine, but I will try to steer you in right direction.

The speed is controled but a rubber friction disk that slides across a steel speed disk. The closer to the center, the lower speed. By squeezing the auger lever these 2 disks make contact. Chances are they are engaged (touching), thus not allowing the friction disk to slide. It usually has a hex shaped shaft through the center which needs to be greased. There is always a way to adjust the difference in the distance between speed disk and friction plate. Look to see if they are engaged (touching) if so it will just be a matter of adjusting. Post back if they are engaged.

i have greased everthing under there and got it to shift from 2 to 6 speeds easily but it won't go to 1 or reverse
if i force it to 1 , it will get stuck

The friction wheel needs to be adjusted.

Go to the deere site you referenced above"

http://manuals.deere.com/cceomview/O..._G87.html#7663

click on "adjust friction wheel" from the left column, this should get your problem solved

thanks
it was the rubber wheel that was rusted on the hex shaft and wouldn't move
i had to sand the rust off and grease the hex shaft
after a few taps, it moved freely
machine works good now and for 15 bucks i can't go wrong
