On the bottom of your engine there's a pulley for your belt. The pot should have wires connecting to it. Check the wires make sure the belt didn't cut it the pot could be bad

LT1046 cub cadet blown clutch..what caused this with new Pto switchpto switch froze..replaced it still will not engage blades.what could blow the new clutch

Are you sure it's blown? Run two jumper wires from the battery or power side of the starter solenoid and energize the clutch. If it energizes and clicks, that's eliminated. Did you blow any fuses?

it is not supposed to start unless some one is in the seat

All the mower will do is click when trying to start. Battery is fine I took out and had it checked

Starter flywheel is not engaging motor

If you blew a fuse you could have a grounded wire someplace. Check the wiring on the solinoid, on the battery, on the lights and anyplace there could have been a bear spot rubbed. If the flywheel does not engage check the flywheel gear on the end of the started to see if it is chewed and worn. These can be replaced easily,
