Question about Cub Cadet Garden
What would blow new clutch on LT1046 cub cadet..new Pto switch..blades will not engage
Are you sure it's blown? Run two jumper wires from the battery or power side of the starter solenoid and energize the clutch. If it energizes and clicks, that's eliminated. Did you blow any fuses?

Form what you are desribing you have a direct short, probaly in the wiring going to pto. I t has rubbed somewhere and is causing your short. Unplug the wires at connector close to your pto clutch and try it again and see if fuse stuill blows after you unhook it.
If the fuse still blows it is in the wiring going back up to thje switch. If the fuse does not blow after unhooking wiring connector the problem is in the clutch.
Thanks for using FixYa - a FixYa rating is appreciated!!

check your spacers to be sure you havent locked the clutch assembly directly to the motor shaft
you should be able to turn it fairly free less some clutch drag

I hope this will help you...under the side panels on each side of the mower, there are "reverse lockout safety switches", they are supposed to stop the blades when both handles are pulled back. If one or both of the switches are out, the deck will not engage. Also, under the right side panel (when sitting on seat) there should be 3 relay switches, the one closest to the motor controls the PTO., if this is out, the PTO will not engage.

SOURCE: pto not engaging blades
Lets start from the beginning:
Do you have power going to the switch you need to check this with a volt meter it should read between 12 and 13 volts with thew engine off
if you have power to the switch next we need to check to see if there is power coming out of the switch again check with a volt meter.
if you have power coming out of the switch then we need to see f power is getting to the relay on the battery terminal and the switch terminal and if there is power to both terminals then we need to see if the relay is functioning correctly ( check output terminal with voltmeter)
If we have power to and through the relay we need to see if we are getting power to the clutch ( check this at the clutch) if there is no power to the clutch trace your wires back until you find power and make the repair. If ther is power to the clutch but the clutch does not engage you may have an open ground meaning the circuit is not complete again check your wiring. If everything checks out but the clutch does not engage then you have a bad / open in your clutch hope this helps

Sounds more like a PTO clutch failure, rather than the switch. The clutch is mounted on the engine shaft, between the hydrostatic drive pulley (nearest the chassis) and the mower deck belt pulley (farther from the chassis).
Since it's an expensive part, make sure the problem isn't in the switch or wiring first. You could do that by probing the wires to the PTO clutch with an automotive test light - they are inexpensive and handy. Clip the ground wire of the test light to the chassis, and probe the hot wire to the clutch (it's the one that doesn't connect to ground) when the engine is running and the PTO switch is engaged. Obviously a helper has to be in the seat, and you should be careful doing this. If the light glows brightly, and the clutch doesn't engage, you definitely have a bad clutch. Good luck! Please rate my answer if helpful, thanks.
