Try pulling on the cable coming down to deck. This cable might be your problem. Also check that the spring on the end of this cable is present and functional.

OK. You have one of two problems, or maybe a combination of the two.lol. Either the clutch cable that runs from the lever to the deck is frozen, or most likely, the pivot point on the idler arm on the deck is rusted up and is not disengaging. Spray some penatrating oil at the base of the bracket the idler pulley is mounted on (pivot point) while working it back an forth until is loosens up. There is also a spring that is hooked to the idler arm and to a slot in the middle toward the front of the deck to pull the arm forward when the blades are disengaged. Make sure that is in place also.

There are blade brakes, one on each blade pulley. You will need to check that the brakes are in good working order and that the springs holding them against the pulleys are in place. Also there is a spring to return the idler pulley to the neutral position. The spring could be broken or the idler pivot rusted not allowing it to return to fully neutral position. This should get you going down the right track. Hope this helps; please vote yes. Thank you.
