TEST PTO SWITCH from 805 cub cadet

Turn the key switch to the on position. Pull up on the pto and see if you hear the clutch engage. If it does its ok, how ever if it doesn't, it may be the clutch is bad. To check this, unplug the clutch wire from the clutch, turn the key to the on position and check if you have at least 12 volts at the clutch. If you do the clutch is bad. If you don't, you will need to test every safety switch on the unit. The pto will not work if a safety switch isn't working properly.

My Cub cadet pto cluch bearing is froze up on my 2518 lawn tracto

A medium length extension (stuck through the grill), a swivel and an impact is all you need to remove the pulley with the frozen bearing. It's just a bolt, a washer, and a lock washer holding it on. You just need to remove the pulley to see if the bearing is stuck. Take the pulley to your local shop that can press bearings and you can be up and running for $20 dollars instead of $300. Here's a diagram I found on partstree:

PTO switch shuts down tractor

if the pto bearing is locked up it will stop a motor dead this is a common problem. You will have to get a new clutch assemble. The other thing that it could be is the deck has a locked up spindle.

I can not get my mower deck to turn when I pull the electric PTO on an older 2000 Series Cub Cadet, anyone know anything

Your switch could be bad, or the voltage needed to turn on the PTO may not be up to par, or you may have a safety switch that won't let you start the PTO. I'd start with the safety switches.
