Either the PTO clutch itself, or the wiring to it, is shorted, causing the fuse to blow. The PTO clutch is mounted on the motor shaft, prevented from rotating by an anchor bolted to the chassis. A pair of wires lead away from it to a connector (probably after passing through the chassis). Disconnect that connector - may be one for each wire, or a double-contact connector. Look carefully at the wires -- they are in a vulnerable area, lots of vibration, and could chafe to wear away their insulation, grounding out to the chassis. That could be fixed with some tape. Get an ohmmeter with a low resistance scale (200 ohms or less is even better) and measure the resistance between the PTO clutch wires - should be about 1.5 to 2.5 ohms. If much less, the clutch is shorted and must be replaced. Good luck! If helpful, please rate my answer, thanks!

I have a husqvarna LGT2654 it blows fuse brought in for sev was told to clutch shorted but unplugged pro and fuse still blows fuse any ideas

If the tractor blows fuse while the engine only is running, you may have a hot wire grounding out. If the fuse blows when engaging the blades, the PTO switch or electric clutch is the problem.

Snapper pro blowing fuses

Usually fuses blow due to resistance against the engine trying to turn the blades. Make sure everything spins freely.

Scotts 2554 mower wont start added new battery, cleaned carb and needle seat. new pto switch but still pops fuse when u pull the pto switch, put new swi=tch in and now wont even turn over at all

Does the engine turn over?. The pto switch you mentioned is this the POWER TAKE OFF switch? In other words starts the deck? If so, it must be off when starting the mower. Any internal combustion motor needs fuel and spark. If it cranks over check for a spark. If no spark determine if it has points or breakerless ignition. Also check magneto coil. If you have spark then, be sure fuel is getting to the carb. With today's gasoline, you can't let it sit in the tank long without adding an additive. If the PTO switch you described, is blowing a fuse, then it cold be a bad coil on the clutch. You can disconnect this coil to see if it stops blowing the fuse. you didn't mention if it is a Kohler or BS engine. Try this link:
