Brake clutch 42"sears mower

My mower was working normally until I stopped to talk to wife. When I started to resume mowing I had not forward or reverse drive. If I lift the brake/clutch petal with my toe works fine. I put a small bungee cord on petal and works great. I changed both belts and problem still exist. Any sugestions will be greatly appreaciated. Thanks. Mower is a Sears model #917.271660 17 hp 42 in cut.

Sounds like the clutch spring may have broken. It runs up to the front of the mower on the right side under the frame.

Thanks. I called myself looking and could not fine a spring at all. Is it possible it broke and fell off somewhere?

Thanks. I Thought I saw one on my parts list. Didn't know where exactly to look. I have a parts mower, so I'll see if I can find one on it. This a great site. Thank you.
