Hello. Mower was working fine. Removed blade to sharpen. Reinstalled blade and pull rope was frozen. Engaged blade with roto stop lever, pull rope would then pull and start mower. When I release roto stop lever, engine abruply stops. What do I need to adjust? An y other ideas? Thanks for your time.

Was the mower tipped w/ the air filter down? Is it contaminated?

The Blade Brake needs to be adjusted. It is braking the blade and the engine.
