Older model murray wont go?

I bought an older model Murray mower and changed the tire on it this afternoon...now the transmission does not engage? The mower starts fine and runs strong...Is there something that could have fallen off or a quick fix...I don't know a ton about this stuff...but it seems like something just came off....thanks for your help...

Yep, the axle key fell out. You'll need to find it (probably under the spot hwere you took the wheel off, or any place where you sat the wheel to work on it), and put it back in the slot in the axle.

thanks

It is amazing that a little piece of steel like that could make me want to smash my head against the wall....It was right under where I changed the tire...believe it or not I put it together the right way and mowed the back yard....thanks for the wisdom...
