One or both?

I have a Harmony HRM 215 SXA model# MZBB 6042129.
Drive wheels-should both be powering the mower forward?
I can grip the left wheel and stop it, but not the right wheel when handle is pulled to activate the drive.
This was a freebee mower and I am debating about any money to spend on it. Starts and runs good after a carb cleaning, but the drive seems funky.

The wheel might be stripped where the gear engages it would be a guess, There is a couple of sharp Honda guys here that could tell you right off the bat.
Here is a parts diagram of the rear wheels where you can see the geared wheels. Hope this helps!

Maybe it s a "limited slip" feature so you can turn the mower without having direct drive to the wheels in a turn so you don't strip the wheel gear,
This is only an assumption as I am not familiar with these Honda's. I don't want to mislead you.
Looks like by this pic of your tranny, there may be something like that going on, I just can't find an exploded view of the tranny at this time to see how its set up.

Did you check that, maybe it sheared or worn down and just friction is turning the wheel until you hold it and create resistance??

Looks like the new trannys run @$140 +- :(
Not a bad idea, I have a craftsman I picked up for $5, rebuilt the carb and runs fine but has a drive issue. Keeping it to mow the chicken run.
Thanks B1, I'm a little smarter today! :)
Bummer...sorry to hear about that. Maybe a good welding project for the winter mower break?......Body as in deck?:dunno:
Yup, sheet metal, angle iron and pop rivets and nuts and bolts and zip ties..can't forget zip ties ;)
