Question about Craftsman 17.5 hp 42 in. Deck Lawn Tractor - CA Model
Tractor stalls when put in gear after having deck removed
Sounds like a safety interlock. Was there any electrical wires going to the deck, to the engage switch, the up down lever? There is a neutral switch that is closing or opening and the circuit is shutting down the motor.

Sounds like your drive belt may have came off or it needs to be replaced. Take the battery out from under the seat to see if belt is still around transaxle. Sometimes it will jump off when doing a lot of starting stopping
