Hi my name is ***** ***** welcome to Just Answer. Is the engine turning over when you turn the key ?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No it seems like its engaged and it shouldn't be I placed all controls in proper position, but the rean wheels are locked up so it won't turn over, had to push it into shed with wheel skidding
Expert:  Briggs-Fan replied 1 year ago.
Ok even locking the parking brake ?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
at first it turned over, but it won't start, rather run the battery down i stop, the real question if everything is proper for startind, why then does it appear to be in gear it should in neutral position for starting and the rear wheels should be free moving???????

The phone call is a auto feature , remove the spark plug and see if you can turn the flywheel by hand
