My LT133 is between 15 and 20 years old.  A few days ago it wouldn't start so today I replaced the fuel pump and it started right up.  I was ready to celebrate then I put it in gear and took my foot of the brake and nothing!  this is the 5-speed trans.  No movement in any forward gear or reverse. How could changing the fuel pump cause the drive train to fail?  No issues before the fuel pump failed.  I pushed it in and of my little shed a couple of times about 10 feet while I was working on the fuel pump.

Did you use the freewheel valve on the hydro?

I wonder if when pushing it the belt came off a pulley or got under the idler. You need to check where the disconnect is between motor and wheels. Could be a loose pulley or belt or axle key. Check all this simple stuff before going into the trans.

OK, now that it is bright daylight I can see the drive belt is off the engine drive pulley.  Just got to figure out how to get it back on.
