    how mechanically inclined are you? can i trust you that you removed the tire like a normal guy or did you rig the tracker up with blocks and a towe rope or something? I'm thinking you may have broken the the spring that puts your tractor in lay over. walk me through your tire repair.

SOURCE: NO FORWARD NO REVERSE

I had the same problem so I looked under the mower and the belt that goes from the engine to the back of the mower was off so I pushed the clutch as far forward as I could and the belt went on it and it worked

Hi
Check to see if any oil leaks between rear wheels where the tractor was parked. Also make sure hydrostatic disengage lever, at rear of tractor by hitch, has to be pushed in.
