Is it stalling the engine as in it won't turn or is it shutting the engine ignition OFF?

 

Any bearing that has failed in the belt idlers to the spindle bearings will stall the engine.

 

The seat switch can shut the engine off with the pto ON so wonder if it is the cause of the failure?

With the mower running and the operator falls out of seat the engine should quit.

 

The 211-5 was sold 1985-1989 so this one may not be correct. If not post the tractor model number - may be under the seat on a decal.

:WRS:

I presume you have removed the belt and found that the engine isn't being dragged down with it removed. Also you have checked to see that nothing on the deck is contributing to the problem. Quick fixes generally don't last very long. If it is the clutch, best bet would be to  remove and disassemble the clutch and use steel wool and WD-40 to remove rust from the components. 

The clutch in the attached thread is similar to yours, read it and see what you think.
