Question about Oregon Scientific Electric PTO Clutch for Exmark and Warner

1 Answer

Pto clutch have a friend with a Areins 14 hp zero radius. About 8 years old. the bearings went bad. he had them replaced. we put it back together and when you start it and engage the pto switch it stalls the engine. all belts are on correctly and tested the safety seat switch which is ok. We can't figure out what is wrong. Any thoughts? Any and all help would be appreciated. Thanks Jim

    Does the engine pick back up in RPM speed? or does it stay stalled the whole time the PTO is engaged?

I have a LT1042, cub cadet. PTO clutch burnt up. I replaced it and the solenoid, fuse, and relay. Thinking that when PTO clutch burnt out that something else like a wire or sensor went out also.


Check all the safety switches u have a bad one look under the seat first that one is a common problem so I take it your PTO won't engage I bet your old PTO is still good the safety junk they put on these mowers fails a lot causing problems running your mower also look under the back side by the tire there is another safety switch that gets corroded that's switch is the one that will not let you mow in reverse if you want to bypass it u can just put the wires together then beware your mower will work in reverse also I hope this helps you have a great day Regards Chris

Electric clutch wont engage when when switched on even though I can hear a clicking sound at the clutch.


PTO Clutch will not stay engaged.
There is a very fine one page discussion on evaluating electric clutches at this site:

http://www.messicks.com/Articles/FixingElectricClutch.aspx

My JD tech manual, which covers the entire LA 100 series, agrees with the electrical specifications. It states that the Electric PTO Clutch should show the following:
  • Resistance 3.7 ohms
  • Current Draw 3.25 amps.
It does not give the air gap. It does include a note to check the PTO Clutch Key for damage or if missing. So there is a drive key between the PTO Clutch and the shaft. Additionally, it recommends checking the tightness of the cap screw. That's the screw or bolt that holds the clutch on the shaft.
  • Cap Screw torque 55 lb-ft (75 N.m).

What is the Function of the pto control


It is to supply power the electric clutch that drives the mower deck.
If not functioning then the switch, PTO clutch, or wiring is not working properly. Note on some ZTRs when both handles are in reverse then electric clutch is disengage for safety.

Remove clutch


I'm assuming you're referring to the PTO clutch on the bottom of the engine shaft. There's a 5/8" bolt that goes up through the clutch into the shaft. Remove it, but then turn it back in about 10 turns and use a wheel puller to start getting it off. You might have to c-clamp the PTO/clutch top and bottom together to get both pieces off. Once the assembly starts coming down the shaft, you can probably remove the wheel puller, remove the bolt completely, and pull the PTO/Clutch off by hand. Be sure to unplug the PTO/clutch before removing it. Also, many of these have a spacing washer on top of the PTO/Clutch that comes off in the process. BE SURE to put it back on before replacing the PTO/Clutch. DO NOT hit anything with a hammer to try to break it loose - you'll most likely NOT get the part off and most probably WILL damage necessary parts.

Pto stopped working on areins tractor.


It sounds like your switch is working. Other issues might be a belt that jumped it's track and isn't tight when the tensioner tightens up, or a belt that has stretched beyond working limits, or a bad PTO clutch. You could also have a bad spot in the wire that heads to the pto clutch.

Simplicity zero turn electrical problems


charge the battery not hooked up to the mower let it sit overnight and try again the battery might just be died they only last a couple years put a volt meter on the battery when off then start it and watch the battery voltage should be around 14 volts running the pto clutch draws the most thats why it shuts off first the ign doesn't take any the carb needs very little

PtO will not engage on cub cadet 1000


It would be helpful if I knew whether it was working and quit or has never worked. At any rate it has of course a live PTO on it (not dependent on the clutch to engage-disengage it). Check your linkage, make sure nothing has come loose and not moving the travel rod. Secondly some models have a hydraulic fluid compartment that is used for the PTO alone, check to see if this is the case and if so check fluid levels. Back to linkage, the engage mechanism is usually a lever of some type that moves a valve body and lets hydraulic flow under extreme and engage s set of input and output clutches together. If your engage mechanism is a magnetic clutch, check for bad wiring and burnt fuses. If it is a fuse replace with the same value as already in the harness. If the new fuse flows don't do like me and put a larger fuse in it, though that will show what wires are involved with the clutch engagement it also shows the wires to be replaced. Check wiring for ***** wires or wires worn and touching metal parts and grounding out.Back to Hydraulics again, unless you've loaded the PTO hard enough to burn the clutches out (which I doubt very much) it can only be that fluid is not getting to the clutches. Chances that there is a problem inside the tractor with the valve body are slim but possible. Most PTO that just quit are caused by linkage problems or low Hydraulic fluid. Check all the above, I believe you will find your problem lies somewhere in what I have explained. I farmed for 30 years and we ran from 140 -250 HP tractors and if a PTO went out it was usually linkage or low Hydraulic Fluid. Hope this helps, don't want to miss a crop over a PTO!Col.
