Thanks for all the help. I pulled the bottom plate off and checked it over good, everything inside was well greased and free moving. I used a pair of pliers to move blades back and forth and all the gears appeared to be intact and functioning. Im not familiar with the clutches in these so I dropped it off at my service shop this afternoon. Ill keep y'all posted.
Thanks again for the tips!!!!!
