JD L110 Lawn Tractor, mower problem

I started up my Lawn Tractor today and tried ot engage the mowing unit and it stalls every time I try to engage it. Upon doing it slowly I noticed it smoking directly below the engine each time it engaged and stalled. The Drive sheave, if that's what it's called, coming from the engine that the belt wraps around was hot. I hosed down the entire deck to loosen old dirt and clean it out. Had my wife slowly engage it as I watched it and each time the belt tightened it smoked at the sheave below the engine. Any ideas?

Is that in the engine itself? Expensive? Easy to fix myself?

There's probably something jamming the blade(s) under the mower. Look for rope or wire wrapped around the blade, or a stick or piece of wood jammed between the blade and the deck. If nothing found there, try turning each blade by hand and see where the problem is. Something's keeping one from turning.
