When you had the wheel off you probley dropped the key on the axle it should be about a quarter of inch square and about an inch long. Good Luck.

Similar thing happened to me . There is a half moon "key" that slides into a groove in the axle. Sounds like that fell out when you took off the wheel. Look around where you took the wheel off to see if you can find it. If not they're not very expensive at a repair shop. I did not know this & I took in in to the shop. Luckily they only charged me for the part.

somehow did the little freewheel lever get pulled in the rear of the tractor to disengage transmission?..usually out is disengage and in is engaged. look around the back panel behind the rear axle for a small lever you can pull or push in.

Hi, Just got your request and am now going to look up all I can find on this model of tractor. In the mean time double check your push or drive lever again to make sure it is not binding and make sure the blades are not selected, although I am sure they are not but at this point I am not ruling anything out. I will have to dig into this issue and check on the trans axle set up for you.
