Secondly, how do you engage the blades on a Craftsman riding lawn mower?
Find the plunger at the top of the attachment lift lever. Press the plunger inward with your thumb, and move the attachment lift lever back, or toward you, to lower the cutting blade. Release the plunger and attachment lift lever. Pull the attachment clutch switch outward to “Engage” to make the cutting blade rotate.

Why wont my blades engage on my riding mower?
Why won’t my riding mower blades engage? Your riding mower blades won’t engage if the clutches are broken and the cable is damaged. Additionally, if the deck belt is damaged, the pulley system is frozen, and the battery has a weak charge, the chances are that your riding mower blades won’t engage.
If the PTO clutch is not getting power, if the clutch solenoid is defective, or if the clutch is worn out, the lawn mower blades will not engage. The PTO clutch is not repairable—if the clutch is defective, you must replace it. The PTO switch provides power to the PTO clutch.
Power take-off (PTO) clutches provide a mechanical disconnect between the power created by gas and diesel engines or electric motors to another piece of equipment. The PTO clutches enable the transmission of that energy to auxiliary equipment that does not generate its own power.
One end of the spring attaches to the “bracket assembly”. The other end attaches to a small hole at the back of the chassis. Hook the new spring to the bracket. Hook a STRONG cable or wire to the other end of the spring and pull the spring through the edge of the chassis next to the destination hole and hook it.
