Problem solved! :D I found the four screws that secure the motor were loose. When I tightened the four screws, I was able to manually open the drive sheaves. I now have a fully rebuilt and operational "hybrid Greenie". :D

Thank you for all your assistance, it is greatly appreiciated !!!

Is it high spring tension, or, weak fingers pulling it out? Yes that is a very stiff spring.
Above posted before reading the last post above.
Not sure I understand WHY loose screws would cause binding unless that caused the floating sheave to get cocked on the shaft.
