Craftsman snow thrower

I have a 11 horse Craftsman snowthrower Model 536.881110, It runs very well, but I cannot depress the handle to engage the auger. I have checked for anything in the chute and the cable is fine. Any ideas?

Remove the belt cover and try to move the belt idler wheel linkage by hand. It should pivot easily moving the idler wheel to put tension on the belt. I believe the pivot shaft may be rusted.
