The load from having the blades turning is probably preventing your engine from starting.

Upper and lower belt guides need to be in place, and adjusted properly, to prevent the PTO belts from turning all the time.

When the PTO is engaged, the idler pulley moves against the belt(s) to apply tension.

When the PTO is dis-engaged, the idler pulley moves away from the belt(s), and there is slack in the belt(s). ....The belt guides control the location of where the slack occurs, to prevent the belt(s) from dragging on the engine pulley (which causes the PTO to turn).

The PTO assembly on the Bolens tube-frames can be adjusted vertically to increase or decrease the tension on the belt(s).

Goodnews that pto switch should be located by the base of your steering colum, mine is just to the left where the pto shaft is located.

What model Tractor are we talking about... a 1050 dosent have any safety switches...
Like Bruce mentioned above make sure all belt guards are in place and you have the belts adjusted correctly. Do you have the correct size 42.5'' belts on there?

...when the pto is turning tractor won't start


Your statement was misleading.

How can the PTO be turning if the engine wouldn't crank because you didn't step on the clutch?

The PTO and Clutch safety switches interrupt the power going to the solenoid to crank the engine.
