318 running problem

Kenneth My 318 will not stay started when I either let off the break, try to shift to forward or revirse, or when I turn on either the front or rear PTO switch, What I am saying is I can get it stared and set there with my foot on the break and it will run, but if I start to take my foot off the break it will die, with the break on and it running if I start to move the shift lever it will die, and if I turn on either of the PTO switches it dies. And ideas on what can cause this? Thanks Kenny
Curt Have you checked the seat safety switch? that would be a common link. I doubt any problem with the neutral saftey, could be a fault in the ignition switch too but i would start with the seat.
Kenneth I found the problem, it was a blown 3 amp fuse
