Murray riding mower will not move

I was mowing and it stopped moving...No noise , just slowed down & stopped.....Not the belt this time....Belt is intact....Jacked it up and wheels turn freely in gear or out of gear....Rear wheel turns one way and other rear wheel turns opposite 10 HP model 30550x92D.....Any help is appreciated....

Which belt?
Some have two belts, one for the deck and another to run the hydrolic pump.
The deck belt that runs the blades has nothing to do with the drive.

Is the transmission pulley turning when you're trying to move?

I jacked it up started it, put it in gear and i can't see the trans pulley moving at all......Wheels turn freely , one forward , one the opposite direction....How do i adjust the belt tension? I'll try to eliminate the easy stuff first...

Does that one have an Idler Pulley on the Clutch ?

I have an 1973 AMF Rider (predecessor to Murray), which lost it's linkage to the Clutch when it was about 25 years old, and required a little welding to put it back in action.

If the pulley isn't turning, the belt is off most likely. I think you're missing something.
