    Now that we know that you have a Dixie Chopper some of the experts can chime in. Im just a back yard wrench turner myself and have never had this problem yet but I can guess. On right side pump the axel may have broke, or the mounting bracket for it. This is only a guess and prob wrong. Dont sweat it untill you hear back from the shop.

    thanks for the reply. I'm just thinking how some companies try to put it back on you, saying it voided the warranty! hope it's not the case but I've heard the horror stories on utube.

    I have checked lots of reviews of that mower and see nothing about the drive system other than it being jerky. Oh and very long wait times on getting it fixed.

    Check out this page. I think this may be where your problem lies. Your parking brake looks to be connected together to both hydros, if one locks both locks. Somewhere in that complicated picture something is amiss and wont let the park brake unlock. The inverted tire may be where you winched it on the trailer the hydro came out of adjustment or it may have been sitting funny when you looked at it. Keep us posted, as this is a learning post for me too.
