It's odd that it just stopped without any clues. You should be able to put it in gear, push it, and see where the disconnect is in the drivetrain. Hopefully it's something simple and not inside the transmission.

Not knowing Bolens, I'd say that's a possibility.

Does one wheel turn opposite to the other when jacked up. If so, that's normal differential action. Since the engine is not loaded down there is obviously something disconnected somewhere. I'd check the belt drive as per Dr Bolens' prescription!
