First lossen the adjustment on the clutch rod under left side of seat. Next find the trans gear box and look at the shift leaver disconnect that and there will be a steel pin that presses on the break flywheel inside the trans this is most likely rusted tight. It will take a bit of work but remove that and either replace it or clean with a solvent and smooth sand paper then reinstall and your good to go.
Sounds like You may have put on the wrong belt or miss routed it..check the routing and make sure your belt is going around the idler " tensioner " pulley.it will be the one that the back side of the belt runs on and have tension on once the belt is in place.all the other pulleys will have the "v" side of the belt in the pulley...hope this helps good luck
You need to have the trans ECU reset back into its adaptive learning mode. The new trans is shifting harder because the trans ECU still thinks the old one is in the car. The ECU learns your driving habits and compensates clutch wear to provide a smooth consistent shift. Your old trans had a lot of clutch wear so to keep the shift quality it allowed more pressure to the clutch packs. So you now have a trans with less wear on it and the shifts are hard. This is something that removing battery power wont reset. It has to be done with a diagnostic tester. Some trans controllers will begin to compensate on their own over a period of time but I don't yours is one of them.
lift the front of the tractor up at least 3 feet and lower the mow deck to give you clearance. push the clutch pedal and lock it down to release belt tension. remove the mower belt from the engine pulley only. remove the trans belt from the idlers about midway back then from the trans pulley & finally from the engine pulley. put the new belt around the engine shaft above the mower drive pulley but not on the drive pulley then around the trans pulley. now you can put it on the drive pulley and finally on the idlers. make sure you have it under all the various keepers or the belt will shred in like 10 minutes. release the clutch pedal & check the belt again to ensure it is in the correct place. replace the mower drive belt & ensure that didn't come off other pulleys in the process. lower the front of the tractor and test
do you have the complete model number from the data tag on the mower frame? there are two typical systems for these machines, both require the belt to be tight and not slipping at the crank shaft, and the pulley on the trans-axle to not be slipping on its shaft, the older style trans axle uses a belt tensioner system to tighten the belt and turn the pulley, i.e. if the pulley turns then the axle should too. this can be checked by hand with the axle and belt removed. the second system is a clutch style axle that has a constantly tight belt and uses a small cable controlled lever on the transmission housing to engage a drive clutch inside the transaxle, if moving the lever forward doesn't cause the axle to turn as the pulley and shaft are turning the clutch mechanism is usually toast. with both of these systems one should also note whether the axle is turning inside the wheels when they are on the ground, the over running clutch sprags inside the drive gears could be stuck causing the wheels to turn without resistance applied, but stall when in contact with the ground.
while inspecting the trans axle note any wobble or free play in the axles or input shaft, this will indicate a worn case or bearing, resulting in a slipping gear in the trans axle.
If the shifting is easy when the engine is off you have an adjustment to make on the clutching mechanism. if you loosen the belt (the adjustment is under the mower) it should improve the shifting but do not loosen it too much to where the belt begins to slip when in drive.
