Check the wires to the seat switch. Under the seat you should find 2 wires connected to the seat. Unplug them, and use a jumper on the end that goes into the body of the mower. Try it again, and if it works, replace your seat.

One... these are pressure relif valves. There are O rings that probably need replacing is all, the valve can go bad but since both are leaking it will probably be just O rings from heat that went bad.
Remove the valves and replace O rings. Use a 'good' pipe thread dope on threads when re-installing.
Two... never use teflon tape on hydralic systems.
Three... boscia is no guro for sure.... lmao

I just replaced mine today and let me tell you it was a pain in the ****, Had to remove the deck, steering attachment on the underside,and the electric PTO. Took about two hours.

You can check the clutch by taking a wire from the ground and a wire from the positive side of the battery and energizing the clutch directly with the belt off to see if thats it. It could simply be a wire loose in the connection on the clutch....their soldered on.

Depending on your engine.. Briggs and Stratton or Kohler there are 2 different seat switches that are used to power the PTO clutch. The seat switch can cause the PTO clutch to disengage anytime there is not at least 70 lbs in the seat.
The PTO drive wiring has a 30 amp fuse in it. If by chance a stick went through the belt and tore off the wires at the PTO clutch (Common failure) even after you repair the broken wire you still need to replace the fuse.
Check the PTO clearance gap. It should be 0.012 dis-engaged. Any other value and the clutch will not work correctly. Adjust the clutch if necessary.
There is a 2 pin Pigtail just off of the PTO Clutch that you need to check for voltage at the connector. Probe the back of the wires if you can and your looking for 12V DC under the following conditions.
BRAKE ON or tied down
SEAT (Briggs and Stratton engine only) Someone needs to be sitting on the seat.
Then Pull the PTO Switch out. You should hear the PTO Clutch CLICK. If you hear the click there is no need to check voltage. The PTO switch is a multi function switch and it is quite possible the PTO switch failed. I doubt that the PTO Clutch has failed as they normally give you some kind of noisy indication that they are failing and don't fail straight away.
So.. In short
Check PTO Switch (Red wires) to usually red or brown thru the switch
Check 30 amp fuse
Check PTO clutch wires near PTO clutch (They get torn from something traveling through the pulley)
Check PTO clutch clearance at 0.012
Check Brake switch for an audible click as you depress it some distance No click.. possible bad switch
Listen for Seat switch Click as you slowly add weight to the seat. No Click or any click and it can still be suspect due to the Briggs and Stratton installed engine ones have more than one function.. Ignition and PTO clutch power.
The actual wiring diagram is on page 35 of the owners manal that can be found here:
Lastly... check each of the mower deck blade bearings. A seized bearing can cause PTO problems.
Hopefully you have enough information to solve the mystery. If not just respond here and I will help you.
Thanks for choosing FixYa.
