Lawn Mower won't self propel

My lawn mower won't engage the self propel. I took the transmission apart and put it back together. Still have the same problem. I didn't think taking it apart would fix anything, but I gave it a shot.

The mower is a John Deere JS63C 3 speed. Not sure if the issue is with the transmisson or the gears in the back wheels.

Any help would be great.

The belt looks good. All of the cables are in tacted. If I pull the cables the arms on the transmission move.

I tried moving the adjuster that engages the transmission just to see if the gears were not touching all the way.

Still nothing. I read something about the back wheels. Do you think the gears in the wheels might be the issue?

I was able to solve my problem. My neighbors friend works for John Deere and he came and fixed my mower. The issue was with the self propel lever. He adjusted the bracket and that fixed the issue. The lever engaged the transmission. All is good.
