Question about Garden
Did you loose forward and reverse right after fluid change or was it gradual? Sounds like you have air in the system. I would jack up back end and leave fluid fill cap off overnight. Maybe lay a light rag over it to keep debris out, but with the cap off and back end jacked up it should help air bubbles find there way out. Then, replace cap, leave jacked up and try bleeding by forward and reverse. Hope this helps.

In the back of the mower...probably under the seat, there should be a lever to release the transmission, or it is on the back plate. As far as the noise when trying to move drive the mower, the brake in the back, next to the transmission is jammed, use a 1/2 inch wrench to loosen it maybe 1/4 turn and this should unlock the brakes

I have the exact same model MTD tractor with same problem. It began when the bolt that extends through the idler arm assembly broke and subsequently damaged the pulley. Upon examination of the broken bolt, I found that the threaded end that extends below the deck is significantly smaller that the rest of the bolt. I got a larger bolt with the same size threads, bored out the hole through the deck and it made the whole idler assembly much stronger. the deck still has some vibration and some unusual belt harmonics, but it appears to be working. Compared to most other tractors of this size, this deck is very complicated.
