cutter blades will not engage on lawn tractor

Craftsman Lawn Tractor - Model #917.28858

Everything seems fine - tractor runs and rides. But, mower blades do not engage when pulling the red button.

I removed mower deck to check for obstructions ... everything looked clear. Blades turn easily without belt. Belt (and tractor) are brand new. When i look underneath as someone tries to engage the blades, I do not see the pulley turning ... the pulley that runs off the drive system I presume.
