Murray select wide body LT 42" 16.5 hp

I have a Murray select wide body LT 42" 16.5hp riding lawn mower. While I was cutting my grass today, my mower stopped working suddenly. I had restarted it with no problems, til I tried engaging the blades and then it comes to a screeching hault causing the engine to shut down. My model # is 42544X8E and serial # is 7371906091X00363. I have checked all the safety switches as described in your threads and it still does the same thing. I have also replaced the motion belt as well with no luck, can someone help me please? Also my engaging lever pops now when I engage or disengage the blades which it has never done that before.

It still cranks up right? You replaced the motion belt but not the blade belt? Can you turn the blades freely by hand?
