Question about John Deere 420,1020,2010,2020,2510,2520 Tractor Float
I have a John Deere 317 tractor. The engine runs well and I have had it serviced but the problem continues. After turning on the PTO the engine shuts down. The tractor will mow for varying amounts of time before shutting off but, it does restart and run well (backfires because of the sudden shut down) without shutting down when the PTO is off. Since, I had it serviced they said the clutch was good, I was wondering if it could be the safety switch in the seat. I removed the seat switch and ran the tractor making sure the seat switch (with PTO on) was making contact and after a few minutes the tractor shut down. Then ran the tractor without turning on the PTO and the tractor ran fine without stalling. Could it be the seat switch (appears original from the 80's) or something with the wiring or even the clutch?
Its likely to be a switch playing you up try hard wireing the switch to see if it stops this cutting out first, do one switch at a time till you fine the one playing up
