Toro Wheelhorse electric PTO clutch: If the clutch is bad, will it still work randomly or will it just not work at all? I replaced the PTO switch and I do not think that it an electrical issue. TY

Before you decide that it is a bad PTO clutch, carefully follow the wires back to their termination points and see if there is a broken/cut wire or bare wire occasionally shorting to ground. Check that all connections are tight and not corroded.

Toro 11-32 won't battery. i jump the terminals it fires right up. 2nd problem is the deck won't engage I hit the switch and nothing I leave the seat it shuts off when engaged

Check and see if the Engagement termnal on the solenoid is getting power. If it is replace the solenoid.

As for the PTO check for at its connector for voltage. If voltage is there check for about 1.7 ohms resistance across pto coil. If it reads infinity or less than 1.5 ohms replace the pto clutch assembly.

If the pto reads less than 1.5 and there is no voltage at the connector than the pto switch is probably burned up due the shorted pto.

I have a Toro LX 500 Lawn tractor the pto clutch will not engage, I have 13 volt at the plug for the clutch , so ordered and installed new clutch... Still will not engage checked volts again had 9.3

PTO Clutch will not stay engaged.
There is a very fine one page discussion on evaluating electric clutches at this site:

My JD tech manual, which covers the entire LA 100 series, agrees with the electrical specifications. It states that the Electric PTO Clutch should show the following:
  • Resistance 3.7 ohms
  • Current Draw 3.25 amps.
It does not give the air gap. It does include a note to check the PTO Clutch Key for damage or if missing. So there is a drive key between the PTO Clutch and the shaft. Additionally, it recommends checking the tightness of the cap screw. That's the screw or bolt that holds the clutch on the shaft.
  • Cap Screw torque 55 lb-ft (75 N.m).

Toro LX468- Was replacing belt and a small (2") spring came loose from I think the PTO ? Also the PTO clutch should be in what position to permit belt guard installation? Does the guard go into the gr

Yess it goes into the groove to prevent clutch housing from turning and the position of the housing when install the retaining bolts.

The spring into the hole on the clutch housing and other end goes somewhere on the frame. It is being used as a damper spring.

The below should be correct.

The clutch has it's own brearings in it. You have to replace the hole PTO.Sometimes you can find a Aftermarket PTO clutch. There usually A little cheaper.

Just replaced pto clutch brand new ,wont engage.nothing, zip not a movement.

Check that you are getting voltage to the wires that connect to the clutch when you switch on the pto. If not check that you are getting voltage to the pto switch. If you are the pto switch is faulty. Regards Phil
