Question about Poulan Garden
On the top of the mower deck, there is a spring that will pull to disengage the blade idler pulley. At the same time, it will release two springloaded arms with brakes that press on the pulleys at the top of the blade spindles. On top of the mower deck at the back, the two spring loaded arms may be held out of the braking position by a cam. Make sure the cam is free to allow the blade brakes to activate when you disengage the blades. If arms are out of alignment, or the parts are too worn, the blade brakes won't move and the blades keep spinning, even after you have disengaged and the safety switch is deactivated. This is a dangerous situation and should be fixed soon. Good luck.

Check for bad bearing in clutch immediately, Remove belt, try and turn the clutch pulley if it is hard to turn or feels rough, replace the bearing in the clutch. If you do not replace bearing immediately you will be buying a $300.00 clutch very soon. I know from experience. You possibly have been hearing a loud unusual roar from engine area for awhile and wondered where it was coming from. As these bearing will usually squall a cry for awhile before they die.

Since it starts, it doesn't sound like an electrical problem, it sounds like it runs out of air. To test this, remove the air filter, start it and see if it stays running. If so, replace the air filter.
It could also be varnish or sludge in the carb bowl. This is best serviced by a technician if you have little mechanical prowess.
After sitting for 3 years, I would at minimum do all of this before I expected it to run ok:
After sitting 3 years I would also replace the fuel line itself!

If you hit something hard enough to partially shear the key on the blade adapter, you did shear the key on the flywheel, and it will need to be replaced for the engine to run properly.

Replace the coil. Remove the top cover so that you can see the flywheel. There will be a horseshoe shaped peice with the plug wire attatched to it along with a small whir plugged onto it. Remove the two screws holding it on and unplug small wire and disconnect plug wire. When you put the new one on place a business card between coil and flywheel, this will give you the proper spacing, reconnect small wire and plug wire, reassemble top covers and you are good to go.
