Question about Craftsman 17.5 hp 42 in. Deck Lawn Tractor - CA Model
You must have damaged the hub on the deck if you bent one balde you are lucky disconnect the deck drive belt and see if the mower will stay running with the PTO engaged (I'm sure it will) Next pull the deck then replace the hub where the bent blades or blades where dont screww around with trying to fix the hubs its not worth the tome or missery if something goes wrong those blades are spinning to fast if you should break a shaft that one chunk of steel to be flyin around your yard Hope this helps

I have a feeling that the bearings were damaged when they hit. The new blades are ok, but the bearings are growling and I don't know what is causing the engine to shut off. I would pull the deck off, check out the bearings, replace them if needed, just wobble the blade back and forth, it shouldn't move, should be tight, Take off the belt and spin the blade by hand, and see if it growls. It could be the drive pulley bearings that went, check them out too. hope this helps.
