Yes Will the engine turn over if turned by hand ? If so it probably is you starter that needs work on. You replaced the battery but are you sure it is fully charged? These are things to check before spending a lot of money.

The ignition switch may be broken or have a loose wire.

If it isn't on the bottom of the engine (above the blade) then you don't have one. This is not that uncommon. When you need to drain the oil, FIRST- pull the spark plug wire off!!! Then remove the dip stick or filler plug and turn the unit upside down and drain the oil.

Contact MTD if your manual doesn't cover this, or buy a shop manual

Instead of spending all day banging on it all day and getting frustrated i usually run down to the local auto parts shop and borrow a puller, most places these days has a lending library where you have pay a deposit and once you bring back the tool they will give you your cash back. Best way to make sure it comes off without damaging it out of frustration. use a few squirts of penetrating fluid before you go and it will help as well.
