B61 with Quad - can't shift into any quad gears

I am looking at buying a 1958 B61 with Quad. The diesel engine won't run and I'm not sure if it is stuck or not. Front end damage kept me from putting a socket on the crank to check. I am going back with a wrench next time. I can shift into all the gears in the main transmission but I can't get into any gears in the quad. All the glass has been busted out for a long time and I don't know if rain could have caused some trouble leaking down the sticks. The rubber boots on the sticks seem to be in fairly good condition but who knows? Could there be damage to the quad - water or whatever? Thanks.

Same thing happened with my Triplex after the truck sat for five or six years. I (gently) used a pry bar and rubber mallet to free the rods and then shot all moving parts a couple of times with my grease gun. Everything's been fine since. :)
