    I have a Honda model 217, 21" hydro driven mower. When I release the drive bar and try to pull in backwards, the wheels are locked and freewheel. This just started to happen. The drive bar is all the way disengaged. I'm new to Honda mowers - I've had 3 JX-75's.

    Check the wheel ratchet assemblies for dirt causing them to hang up.
