I have a #9, same basic baler, yes you should be able to turn the entire machine by hand using the flywheel (assuming it isn't full of hay) If the knotter arm is tripped (all the way up the star wheel shaft) it will turn harder as you are now trying to turn the knotters in addition to the rest of the machine. Turn the Flywheel COUNTER CLOCKWISE.

Not sure what you mean by a lever and neutral....

If you can't turn the flywheel by hand, probably the plunger is rusted fast from sitting outside. There is no lever for shifting the plunger drive out of gear.

No lever on my #9, I can turn it by hand but the pto shaft flops around if nothing is hooked to it.

I have had about every model of massy and IH balers made from 1949 to the 24 I have now. I have never seen one that was PTO driven with any kind of drive control lever. My old IH had a Wisconsin 4 cyl gas engine on it and you had a flat belt that ran from the engine to the fly wheel and a tension roller that was on the end of a lever to enguage it. Why don't you send a picture so we have a better idea of what your looking at. But the only time I've seen one that you couldn't operate by turning the fly wheel was because either the gearbox got a bunch of water in it and froze up, they ran it out of oil and it fros up, or they didn't clean it out and oil it for winter storage and the plunger rusted in the chamber.
