Maybe possible a clutch disc is â€œstuckâ€ on the drive shaft.
Your have to gain access to the throw -out bearing area and depress the clutch and see what your problem is. A fix maybe is a little penetrating oil on the drive shaft, emery cloth the drive shaft surface or maybe a tap on the clutch disc with a soft object.
This is a link that John *.?-!.* cub owner posted on a clutch asm. http://members.aol.com/pullingtractor/clutch.htm
Hope this helps. If it doesnâ€™t theyâ€™re many people that read this forum that will figure out your problem.

The clutch disk may be stuck to the pressure plate from setting a long time. This is not too uncommon. Sometimes they will break loose from running them. You might have to dis-assemble it to break it loose.

I soaked the shaft with penetrating oil lastnight and will go work on it some in a little. Thanks for the link if I have to take it apart I will probly upgrade to the alum clutch disc while I have it down.

The clutch on my 73 stuck this summer. It hadn't been all that long since I had run it, but it was stuck pretty tight. To get it loose, I finally had to unbolt the engine and slide it forward to get a little working space. After I got it pried loose, everything cleaned up OK. Since the fiber disk wasn't torn or otherwise obviously damaged, I just put it back in. It seems to be fine.
Now I try to more careful to leave it with the brakes locked (which holds the clutch disengaged).
