Poulan Wild Thing 14" shuts down when the brake is engaged

I have a Poulan Wild Thing 14". It has served me well until now. It starts and runs fine. When the brake is engaged, the chainsaw shuts down. It seems like a short circuit is being caused by the brake/ clutch assembly. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.

    Remove the bar cover and rotate the clutch drum, the bearing may be seized.
