Yesterday as I started mowing the Bolens died whenever I'd engage the PTO. I thought it might be a stuck belt as this has happened before a couple times but this time it was different. The belts were all fine and even when I removed the PTO belt from the deck it would die whenever I'd flick the PTO switch. If I turned the PTO off before it died it would start up again, but with a loud popping sound like it was backfiring. The PTO is a model 18318 and the Bolens is an H16xt, though I'm not sure of the year - I think its a late 80's or early 90's model. I know very little about machines so any help would be greatly appreciated.
