    Hi,I have a SCAG Tiger Cub 48" with a 19 HP Kawasaki,I went to start mowing this morning,tried to engage the blades and nothing(I did hear a click when I pulled the PTO knob),I also found on top of the deck,that the belt that drives the blades was comming off and the spring that provides tension was broken.Any ideas whats wrong?Thanks for any help.

    Hmm.. if your car won't start and it's out of gas, what's the first thing you would think to try?
