Pump Levers pushed in, in the rear . What was the part number of the belt used? If belt is turning, and pump levers are pushed in, mower should move

If levers are in the proper position for riding, I would check belt routing and/or belt size.

Double check that the Brake box is disengaging fully also.

What belt number was installed. I see many of these as I am a Toro Dealer, and it is normally the belt size, or levers not disengaging fully.
