I took off the rear wheel to put air in it and have it poped back on the rim since replaceing the wheel the tractor will not ingage in to foward or reverce gear . is there some trick to this

Often there is a keyway in the axle corresponding to another on the inside of the rim hub. Did you check this and make sure the key is there. If the key is gone the axle's turning will not spin the tire.

Shifter knob wont pop out and can not remove key fro ignition

the button on the shifter needs to be poped out in the park position for the key to come out. as far as the button not poping out it may be a linkage problem, only fix is to take the shifter apart until the problem is found.
