Does engine stall or does it cut off like you kill it with key? Have you turned the pto shaft at the front of engine where the drive belts are? I think the drive shaft has a brake that has to release, and is released by a solenoid valve. Drive shaft may not be releasing. When you turn the blades and gearbox , how for forward does the shaft turn?
