First make sure you have the tools, metric that is. The deck must be removed and turned over. To do this you must put the deck in the lowest position. Using a 15mm socket pull the belt tension spring pulley forward to detach from clutch. Next remove retaining pins located at the five deck brackets. This will allow the arms to slide off and the deck can be dragged out from under the mower. Turn deck over. Use a 18 inch 2x4 to block blades while removing the two 15mm bolts. The bolt heads will need to be cleaned so the socket can seat on bolt head. I use my torque wrench to get more leverage and i can use it to reset blade bolts to 64 ft lbs. While blades are of it is a god time to thoroughly clean underside of deck.

This is common for the 70 series.Clutch dics are stuck together,just short of splitting tractor you have to hit a pile of dirt with loader bucket to see if you can break it loose.

1. disengage the blades and allow them to come to a complete stop before reducing the engine RPM
2. adjust the belt tension by loosening the bolt where the cable to engage the blades is attached to the maximum.
3. replace the belt.
