How do I change the throttle handle on a JD D140 mower?

Loosen the cable clamp at the linkage at the carburetor and remove the cable end from the linkage. The throttle lever housing has 2 locking tabs on both sides. You might have to use a screw driver to depress the tabs. While depressing one tab at a time push the lever housing up until removed.

I started my ride on and it will not go forward or in reverse at all.The lock is off so it should be working..any ideas?

if you scroll through these lawn tractor questions, you will note a lot of failed hydrostatic transmissions in the husqvarna line. seems like that is the prime suspect in your problem, if the drive belt is good. i had one and the transmission failed after about 5 years, but I see many with fewer years of wear
with the same problem. a new transmission costs about half of what a new tractor costs. these are actually made by the AYP company which pays a licensing fee to husqvarna to use the name. AYP makes most of the mower lines you see in stores. my neighbor has a craftsman with a bad deck which seemed identical to the husqvarna, except color. However when i went to cannibalize his transmission it was completely different and would not bolt into mine, so i went out and bought a simplicity.

Hydrostatic drive is weak

Try pulling back on the left foot pedal. This manually adjusts the drive belt tension and is a sign that the engine pulley has worn to the point the belt looses traction. A local repairman told me this last week and mine works fine now although in the very near future I'll need to replace the pully. Good luck
