Toro 6.5 hp recycler lawn mower does not self-propel anymore?

I have a '01 TORO. Just went to gas her up and the "self-propel" function no longer works. She runs fine, but basically is now just a push mower. When I push down the top handle/lever for variable speeds ...nothing engages. help!

I'd start by checking to see if the belt is on.

Ha! It's under the mower deck covered by a plastic shroud.

Mower

There should be a thumb screw adjustment on the handle to adjust the tension of the cable that engages the self propel belt tensioner pulley.
