    I have the same problem. Tractor is locked up even when in free wheel mode and when lifted up, the back tires turn in opposite directions.

By this time you have most likely solved or fixed the problem.Your brake is locked on even though you think it is not engaged.Most likely gummed up and it will require loosening up and lubrication.
This is a problem with all ride-ons and should have been solved years ago.

I changed the back tire on my craftsman riding lawn mower and now it will not go forward or backward. It runs fine.


There is a lever between the back tires which disengages the transmission so the mower can be pushed when not running. Chances are you must have disengaged this lever maybe by accident. If you push it back in, the transmission will work right again. Usually it is a wire with a loop on the end.

My deck is way too low. How do I adjust it?


Your mower should have a lever on it that you move to raise or lower your deck. The lever will normally have the slots that it locks into numbered like the trans gears if yours is not automatic.
