Locked rear wheels

I was going to pick up a Troy-Bilt pony but the rear wheels are locked up. I was planning to pull it on a utility trailer that has a boat winch on the front. The parking brake is off and the transaxle is in neutral. It will rock back and forth a few inches but that's all. Anyone have any suggestions.

I got the problem solved using a small floor jack under the rear end. Does anyone know where I might find wiring diagram for this Troy-Bilt N779 Pony rider?

I don't know about a wiring diagram, but the brake on the tranny is probably stuck. This is really common on MTDs.

Some more numbers on the Troy-Bilt Pony are: model - 13AN779G776-183630, serial number - 1H015H10482-000004. Really need a wiring diagram or schematic.

Thanks Cheese for your ideas. It's got several problems, I'm trying to get one straightened out at a time.

I can find nothing on the model number you list. Double check to see if it is correct.

I'm with Airman as far as your numbers.
They appear to be MTD numbers, you may be able to find a manual here PDF Manual Web Archive with correct numbers and format. To see an example of the format click on "whats this" next to the box for model and serial #.

I was able to find an owners manual with an online search but it did not have any parts listings or diagrams.

Come to find out, the brake adjustment nut was pulled up tight. I backed it off and adjusted it for 0.011", and the rear wheels are OK now. This is the second Troy-Bilt pony, I've had in that had this same problem. What could be the reason for the nut tightening up?
