Hey guys i have a scag 36wb with a 15kohler on it. I havent used it in a while so it wouldnt start the other day. I unscrewd the hydro and pushed it to the back of the shop. I was tinkering with it the other day and got it to run. I screwed the things i unscrewed and put it in gear and nothing. the drive belt is turning but wheels are not. what did i do wrong. thanks in advanced

did you engage the pulley chain? that is located right behind the right wheel in the side frame. make sure you pull this chain out a little to unlock the link
and then the pulley underneath will engage the hydro pump drive belt
