Which of these is your long model number?
31-18OE01, 518-H Garden Tractor, 1988
31-18OE02, 518-H Garden Tractor, 1989
E1-18OE01, 518-HE Automatic Garden Tractor, 1988
E1-18OE02, 518-H Garden Tractor, 1989
R1-18OE01, 518-H Garden Tractor, 1990
R1-18OE02, 518-H Garden Tractor, 1990
Go to https://lookup3.toro.com/request/request.cfm
and enter the long model number and type none in the serial # box. (O=Onan=letter, 0=zero). Not all are available for download but you can order those.
You can get to the illustrated parts lists here http://www.partstree.com/parts/
Put Toro in the 2nd box and 518-H in the 3rd box. Select your model from the results.
Garry is right... I have the same tractor and got the manual from there. I have the same machine and did it for myself. You can print it out but there are many pages, as well as wiring diagrams, and other service type items.
Tell us a bit about your new toy... what attachments did you get with it, what's its condition, etc. As always, pictures are always cool too!

First off, welcome to MTF. I am also a new member. I just purchased a 520 H and it did the same thing when I started working on it. When the PTO was engaged, it tried to shut off the engine. My manual states to check the seat switch. I believe it was in the operating and instruction manual. This is a thin manual with the basics about operating the tractor. I got the manual with the tractor, but I think you can download it. I can't remember which section it was in, but I think it was in the section on operating the PTO.
