Troy built self propell

My father-in-law has a troy Built self propell push mower and the self propell doesn't work. Checked the belt and it seems to be fine. When pushing in the lever the belt does tighten. Tried to adjust near the lever but it made no difference other than when we hit a certain spot in the adjustments it does make a noise like it is trying to engage Any ideas what to check? He is getting up in age and I would rather him use the self propell.
Thanks!!
model number is 12AG836E711

Does the pulley turn when you engage it?

Take the front wheels off and see if the axles are turning. When you pull the lever, does it turn a shaft of the tranny to engage it, or does it just tilt the tranny to tighten the belt?

It tilts the tranny. Does that mean I need another tranny? If so about how much does that cost and is it hard to put on.
