I know for a fact that you can download owner's manuals and illustrated parts lists at the simplicity website as i downloaded them for mine. they are quite detailed and show "how to" for adjustments, etc. go over there, and download the manual and follow the instructions. Google "simplicity mower".

Mower will not free wheel.brakes off and hydros released

You have to do one more thing to move this tractor without the motor running.
It takes two people to move the Revolution. One needs to sit on the seat and hold the forward pedal down. It will then freewheel.
So, brake off, both hydro release levers pulled (do NOT pull hard or you will break the springs) and the forward (right hand side, big pedal) pedal pushed down.
Any other question? I know this unit pretty well.

Craftsman hydrostatic strains but won't go forward or reverse

There is a brake lever attached to your transaxle, that when activated, pushes dowel pins which serve as brake pistons, against a brake pad which presses against a disk from your transaxle...whew. Much like a disk break on your car.
The pistons, or dowel pins may be sticking, causing you to be "riding your brake". A little disassembly and some good ole WD-40 might loosen up the bind.
Good luck!
