Did you drain the fuel before you put it away? If not then you should drain the fuel and clean the carb. Gas when in lawn mowers and any other small gas engine will turn into a slim in a way and will block the carb. Drain the fuel and clean the carb system will run great when that is done

Disassemble carburetor and spray with carb. cleaner. Use a Den Tek Brush,
(http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152), to clean the small portals in carb. Make sure that the small screen is free of debris. Reassemble and start.
If this doesn't work, then you will need to buy a carb. kit and replace all the appropriate parts.

Two separate issues:
For free wheeling blades, it is time to replace the following items:
Brake Arm Pad Assembly # 131845X900 (Item 53 in picture)
and depending on condition:
Torsion Brake Spring(s) # 140086 (#58 in picture)
Take a look at Idler Pulley # 131494 (#36 in pictur, checking for wear. Sand and other abrasives will eventually wear the pulley down.
For engagement of handle: Lubricate all moving parts associated with the handle. Use only a dry film moly lubricant. Do NOT use WD40 as it is a penetrating oil and offers very little lubricating properties. Do not use oil as it will only attract dirt and eventually clog everything up.
The idler pulley previously described is on an articulating arm that must move freely, otherwise it will be (1) hard to engage and (2) cause slack when disengaged. In addition, this will result in premature belt failure.
FYI, although a Craftsman badge, this is an AYP (American Yard Product) tractor with a Murray Deck. Keep this in mind when ordering parts so you don't pay for "name branding".
Please let me know if I may assist further.

If this is a manual engagment system all the lever does is to pull a jockey wheel into the back of the belt to tention it thus starting the blades to turn, so either the cable is jammed that pulls the jockey wheel in, or the jockey wheel arm is seized and needs freeing off to allow the jockey to to move to the relaxed position.
