Check that you have about 1" free play in the clutch pedal. The
clutch may be bad but it would still turn the PTO if it had no
load on it.

The easiest way to see if you have a "Live" clutch is to look at
the clevis where it goes into the clutch housing. If it has one
hole, not a "Live" clutch, two holes = "Live " clutch.

If nothing turns in the gearbox then suspect clutch. They are
not too bad a job to split with jacks and blocks as long as you
take your time and jam the front axle with wedges to stop it
flopping from side to side.

it has the two holes. Does that mean that it has a double clutch?

Yes it is a "Live" (Double) clutch. It will come as a complete
assembly, usually, you will also need pilot and thrust
bearings. Watch the thrust bearing as the original was a double
row of ball bearings and the replacement is a single row. This
makes the bearing much thinner and the operating levers on the
clutch will foul on the bearing carrier. I made a spacer to go
behind the bearing and bring it forward to the correct position
on mine.

Clutches are available here in England but should also be
available in the US. You can also put new plates in but I have
found this to be false economy as the linkage will be worn and
you have to have the proper tools to rebuild and set it up.
