the moveable arm that the blade engage pulley is attached to has a hole for a spring as well as the deck (or at least an attached immoveable bracket). spring goes there to bring the blades to a stop when putting the lever in the off possition.

Engine stalls


could be a stuck pulley or bearing, or debris in the cutting deck. make sure the blades turn freely with mower off and blades dissengaged. If they dont, remove the deck and check all of the pulleys for freeness.
