First start by turning ign on,then switch on the pto switch to on. you should hear a click in the clutch. if not use a twelve volt test light,hook aligator end to a good groundand the needle end,,,touch to the pto switchharness to see if you have power to the pto switch. if you don"t, you have to go checkfurther to your power source,(battery) if you do have power there check to see if you have power at the plugin at the end of your wire harness, just at the beginning of where your cluch connects up. you can test you clutch by conneting a test wire from positive on your battery to one of the terminals on your clutch and the other terminal to ground . It willengage if it is good .using either wire is ok as all it will be doing is completing a circuit. hope this helps.

I have a Toro LX 500 Lawn tractor the pto clutch will not engage, I have 13 volt at the plug for the clutch , so ordered and installed new clutch... Still will not engage checked volts again had 9.3


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).

Blades won't engage after got stuck in mud electronic pull on blade engagement


Blades would not turn after I got stuck in mud. Electric clutch.

  • Turn the engine off and remove the key.
  • Check for physical damage; anything look bent?
  • Is the deck belt intact?
  • Spin the pulley on the bottom of the clutch. Does it spin freely?
  • There could be mud or grit stuck in the clutch.
  • There is a drive key between the clutch and the shaft. Has this key been sheared?
  • When you pull the PTO switch does the clutch make a "click"? It's possible the clutch was burnt out during the mud incidence.

i believe the lever is on the left side that operates the pto. on some models it will have a plate stating its the pto, you'll have to start the tractor, and engage the clutch, then engage the pto, and release the clutch. Others you simply engage the pto once you've started the tractor

Blades wont engadge belts on


This would be either the clutch relay, pto switch or pto clutch, check the relay first, then the pto switch, and lastly, check the clutch, if the clutch tries to engage with switch, then the switch and relay are good, and the clutch will need adjusted or replaced

PTO engages, but, keeps becoming disengaged on LT1042.


Cub Cadets have one of two types of PTOs. The most common is gear driven. The gear teeth of the PTO shaft are very small and thin. If the PTO is engaged without proper clutch action, the gear teeth grind together, trying to engage. A little wear on these gears will cause the surface of the gears to become beveled, and when the PTO comes under load, the beveled surfaces of the gear teeth force the gear lock to disengage. The only option is to replace the worn gears...

The second type of PTO drive is electric clutch. This is a disc type clutch that is engaged by energizing an electromagnet built into the clutch pack... any disruption of electrical power to the clutch pack while under load will cause the clutch to disengage and then possibly try to engage while under load and casues the clutch pack to slip and will overheat almost instantly...

if this an older machine i would unpug your ign switch,and your pto switch and your relay and check to see if you have a faulty connection or rusty terminals either on the switch male spades or the female plug.clean or scrape with emery cloth,sandpaper or a pocket knife.spray with electrical contact cleaner.using a twelve volt test light check for voltage going from ign switch to your pto switch--- yes---,then test for voltage to your relay. if ther is it should then go from your relay diectly to your clutch and you should hear a click or your cltch will engage. if not check plug in on your harness to clutch harness.clean terminals.test clutch by using a test lead from positive to one of your cltch wires and anothe from the other wire to ground ,if good it will click.good luck
