Question about Cub Cadet Street Sign- tractor lawn riding mower parts

Open Question

The PTO clutch on my 2518 tractor doesn't disengage and with the engine running I see sparks jumping from the clutch housing to to the stop stud. I assume this indicates the clutch has an internal short and needs to be replaced. Am I correct?

SOURCE: My Cub cadet pto cluch bearing is froze up on my 2518 lawn tracto

A medium length extension (stuck through the grill), a swivel and an impact is all you need to remove the pulley with the frozen bearing. It's just a bolt, a washer, and a lock washer holding it on. You just need to remove the pulley to see if the bearing is stuck. Take the pulley to your local shop that can press bearings and you can be up and running for $20 dollars instead of $300. Here's a diagram I found on partstree:

Pto does not disenguage when I push clutch pedal in


Normally the Clutch/Brake pedal doesn't turn off the PTO.

If the PTO is running, and you do not lock the clutch/brake in the full down position, when you get up from the seat the system will kill the engine. However, the PTO system is still active.
Thus, if you sit back down and try to crank the engine, it won't crank. You must first turn off the PTO switch.

Based on your comment, you are right, the Clutch/Brake will not turn off the PTO as long as you remain in place (and don't try backing up). If you want the PTO to disengage you must turn off the PTO switch.

How do you disengage the clutch after being left on when turning the engine off?


You can kill the engine with the PTO clutch on and then turn the PTO off before trying to restart because the PTO will auto disengage when the engine switch is turned off. The engine should not start if the PTO switch is on.

Can malfunction of PTO or other safety switches prevent start up of mower


You didn't state the model or brand of tractor, but usually the way the cranking circuit work is, from the "S" terminal of the ignition switch, the circuit runs to the PTO switch, if it's in the OFF position, the circuit then runs to the pedal switch, if it's in the DOWN (or brake on) position it then runs to the solenoid. On other tractors, from the ignition switch, the circuit runs to the pedal switch first. (The seat switch isn't used in the cranking circuit).

Any switch can go bad, but I would more likely suspect the pedal switch or loose connection at either switch. (But it could actually be the PTO switch).

Try tracing the circuit from the "S" terminal of the ignition switch through the PTO or pedal switches to the starter solenoid. You may get lucky and find something obvious.

If you find nothing, try jumping across the pedal or the PTO switch (only two terminals are used in the cranking circuit, trace back to ignition switch for the incoming, outgoing is usually directly adjacent). Jumpering will take these out of the circuit and tell you if either is bad internally.

Lastly, there's always the possibility that the ignition switch is bad. (Doesn't happen all that often, but it's suspect as well). Jumper from "B" terminal to "S" terminal will take it out of the circuit.

Pto will not disengage


first unplug the switch and see if it still operate then disconnect the spark plugs then turn the blades threw the discharge opening and see if the engine rotates when moving the blades this will tell you if the clutch is stuck then connect the spark plug wires back on and next to the engine base you will find a 2 wire connector that feeds the clutch power and ground unplug that connector and start the mower see if the blades turn this will tell you if you have a mechanical failure if it does not operate with the wires unplugged its a electrical

When i turn the key on the mower the engine turns but does not want to start


if theres a safety mech's on them make sure blades and pto are disengaged, also sometimes you have to depress clutch or have the parking brake set, just like if you are mowing and decide to stop and put it in nuetral if the blades are lowered and pto engaged when you leave the seat the motor will cut off. if that isn't it make sure your spark plug is pushed all the way on.

Is the pto of a john deere 420 garden tractor run all the time


Are the blades turning? If they are not, this is normal. The PTO is an electro magnetic clutch that engages when you apply electricity via the PTO switch. When it is disengaged, the bearings and top portion of the clutch will turn because it is coupled to the engine. If the blades ARE turning then you have a bad clutch and will need to repair or replace it

Craftsman 26hp Garden Tractor PTO not working


If you changed the belt make sure it did not interfere with the wire that runs from the pto clutch, sometimes that belt can rub on the wire and wear through it,also if you had the clutch off make sure you aligned the steel retainer bolt that sets in the alignment hole on the pto clutch,this keeps the clutch from spring when disengaged if you don't get that pin through the hole in clutch it can push on the clutch and bind it.Also it may be possible to plug that pto switch in backwards.Also if you jumped the fuse out it may now have burnt the switch or wiring somewhere.
