Trans issue after rebuild?

Hey, so I just rebuilt the 17.5hp Briggs in my MTD Yard Machine. The transmission was acting normal prior to the rebuild, but now I’m having issues. When I turn it on and put it in forward, I can drive. The issue is, when I “stop” it tries to push forward. I will coast forward (or back) without giving gas just like an automatic car would. Additionally, once I put it in gear (forward or reverse) I have to turn off the mower, put it in neutral, and restart it in order to switch gears. Is there something in the engine I put in wrong? I didn’t touch the trans at all in the process, and I really doubt it decided to go bad in the two hours it was motorless. Any help would be appreciated
