Craftsman riding mower blades turn slowly.

Ive been having problems getting this mower to cut evenly for a while, the left side would cut good while the rioght side would always leave some grass left uncut. I replaced the belt because I thought the old one had been stretched out.. Well thaT did not fix the issue. It was gradually cutting less every time I cut. But now the blades hardly turn at all. This started yesterday the spindle that that turns the belt is smokiing on top and smells like a clutch in a standard vehicle and it is getting super hot. Im thinking there is some sort of clutch malfunction. Im not sure what this part is called and how to order it. Or could it be something else? thank you.
