This is from a service note in shop:

"SUBJECT: Self-propelled system locks up or does not work properly. If pushed the wheels will not roll. (may be accompanied by grinding or clicking)

SITUATION: Inadequate lubrication results in the key or drive pinion sticking.
CORRECTION: Remove the drive wheel, clip ring, thrust washer, pinion, key and spring. Clean any lubricant or rust from the parts. Lubricate generously with anti-seize and reassemble.
Note: More information regarding the service of this drive system is in the Walk Power Mower Drive Systems Service Manual, Form #492-4733.

Beginning in April of 2002 Toro began making changes in their production process to ensure proper lubrication. This was done in several steps, each has improved the situation. Please remind your customers that lubrication of the wheel pinion clutch is part of normal maintenance and is covered in the owner's manual. Three to four drops of engine oil on each side of the pinion is required every 25 hours, or at least once a year.
"

parts for this unit can be looked up at www.arcolawn.com
good luck
