Sounds like the disk is stuck together.

Sounds like the driveshaft has grooves in it that prevent the throwout bearing from sliding.

They can do both.The laminated clutches are usually the ones that seize or rust fast to the disks.

 

Parts Manual is here if you don't have it.Page 15 is the clutch assembly.Make sure you are not missing any parts.Namely the adjustable rod that pulls the clutch

http://gardentractor...6-parts-manual/

 

Clutch and brake adjustment is on pages 55-62 on This manual.

http://gardentractor...service-manual/

 

 

Did you have the Driveshaft out of the tractor? You said you replaced springs? Clutch spring and teaser spring?

 

It could be brake adjustment related.1st 3/4 of the pedal is all clutch so adjust it so the brakes don't come on till the clutch disengages fully.

 

You can unhook the brakes until you get the clutch working.Just pull the cotter pins on the calipers and let the rods hang loose.

 

 

Verify that Parts # 9 and 10 are not wore out.Clutch hanger and Clutch release leaver.The 4 holes where the long bolt connects the 2 gets really worn on these and makes the clutch not work.They are easily repairable.

 

 

Post a couple Pictures of the underside of your tractor from the clutch disk back to the last roll pin.If something is out of place we'll find it.
