Hi all,

took the PTO clutch off yesterday to replace a belt and putting it back on, I didn't tighten the hex bolt well enough. Unfortunately as I was mowing, the clutch fell off and broke what I assume is the wiring for the PTO kill switch. I disconnected the wiring at the connector hoping that would just bypass it. I also tied the wires together (bad idea)hoping that would do it.

If someone can tell me if indeed the wiring connected to the PTO clutch is a kill switch I'd appreciate it, and if so, is there a quick way to bypass it so I can get back to mowing?

This wiring is in a yellow heavy canvas sheath connecting to a female plug that has blue and white wiring leading up to I believe the PTO lever. Reconnecting this wiring to the PTO clutch is a nasty, messy ,sweaty job that I'd like to avoid if possible. Email me at if you have specific questions.
