Question about Garden
I recently acquired a snapper LT16 lawn tractor. the electric pto clutch is seized up on it and i need to rebuild/replace it. However, a brand new one costs at least $150. I'm trying to find some used ones on ebay and craigslist, however ones for my particular tractor are scarce. I can find a whole bunch of ones that seem to have the same dimensions, however they're for JD's or other brands. So, i guess my question is; do i have to find one that originally came off of a similar tractor, or can i just get one that has the same dimensions. Thanks.

The most likely problem is the pto solenoid valve on the rear of the tractor.It could be the speed sensor but you won't know until you get the codes read by the dealer.I have had to replace the b.c.u. for this problem but it is not common.

This is just a suggestion. Try pulling the choke out about one third to one half and then engage the PTO. Sometimes the air idle adjust screw port gets a tiny speck of debris in it. If with the choke partially out and the PTO engages the just grab a screwdriver and turn the air idle mixture screw counter clockwise a hair.

Testimonial: "Hit on the head with such a simple solution"
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

I'm wondering if your battery is going bad or if it does not have enough capacity for the cold weather.
Do you have the headlights on? Does it last longer without loading down with them turned off? If you turn them on does it start to load up faster?
The alternator on these tractors are generally large enough for normal applications and keeps the battery charged, but factors like cold weather and heavy loads, they can't keep up.
If you battery is getting older and won't hold a charge well this may be the real cause.
If you decide this is the problem, buy the battery with the biggest capacity that will fit.
