317 PTO trouble

1321 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Sparky55
The engine dies whenever I throw on the PTO switch. I have checked out everything I can think of. The PTO switch is Ok, seat switch ok. I removed the pulley from the PTO and turned it on and it did not kill the engine, The coil magnetizes fine. Any ideas?

Dies meaning just cuts off or comes to a screeching halt.
Poss. the bearings are seized and when the PTO is energized the engine can't overcome the resistance the seized bearing are creating.

Just a thought.
