    I found the trouble. It was the clutch SW It was intermittent I took the big ground off the frame and taped it up and then I took the ground side of the electric clutch and jump it to the negative side of the battery and it worked . The only thing is you don't have any safety features which is alright with me. Thanks for ever ones help Longone 511

    I am not sure where they may have put it but try following the green wire from your seat switch. The way I read the wiring diagram, it should go directly to the relay so it could be under the seat platform, inside the frame and well hidden or they could have put it up under the dash where it would be out of harms way somewhat.

    Have you checked the operator presence relay? It should be a small black plastic box with 5 terminals on it

Where is the PTO switch?


The switch is on the dash bezel, the electric clutch is on the deck. Some clutches can be adjusted but I need the model number of your mower first.

I have a husqvarna riding mower.. when i engage pto it kills the mower.. i direct wired the pto to the battery and it kicks on and off while mowing, mower runs fine when the pto is off please help


If you wired the pto directly to the battery and still kicks off and on, you have a bad pto clutch. They can be expensive but they are fairly easy to replace. Hope this helped.

check the "kill switch" they are usually located in the seating area. it senses for pressure or seat angle and will kill the mower if nobody is sitting on the mower. Good Luck

Mower


Most mowers have a safety interlock to prevent starting when the PTO is engaged so it sounds normal.

Have a Craftsman 26 hp, 48" mower...mower starts runs but when I try to engage the blades nothing happens. Checked all the belts, ck for blockage but nothing...what would the next step be?? Tks


When you say nothing happens...is the PTO engaging? You said that you already checked the belts...if none of these are off...you maybe looking at a new PTO clutch.www.nnyparts.com
