Hi I just bought a simplicity 3112h and I'm new to simplicity tractors and was wondering if anyone is familiar with this model who could answer my questions?

Welcome!  If the freewheel lever is not affecting operation, it sounds like you have a problem, unfortunately.

 

Is your axle tube rotating, or not?  Here is a couple pics of the freewheel lever assembly.  It's rare, but the ball stem on the internal linkage can break, and you will need to open things up to fix it.

Neutral Position? position on the  Hydro lever for the drive or the lever located in the back of the tractor? 

 

It don't matter what you do with the drive lever, its the lever in the back of the tractor that put the tractor in and out of gear. That lever in the back is the only way to get your hydro to free wheel. The drive lever just opens and closes a port to limit fluid flow for speed adjustment.

Does it have a foot clutch like my 4041 PowrMax? If so, make sure it's engaging properly.
