LT150 stalls on clutch release

This answer was rated:

Replaced drive belt on LT150 now stalls on clutch release and gears a bit sticky. Seat switch okay...does the same thing with belt on or off so belt may be a red herring

I could not locate the LT150, but here is LT152 schematic. The seat switch and the brake switch have to complete the run circuit. It is not complete, so it kills the engine when the brake is released. Check the harness to both the seat and the brake switch. You can check the circuit with an ohmmeter or a test light .

Curtis B. :

Look to see if when replacing the belt, you could have knocked the brake wires loose.

Curtis B. :

Let me know,. Thank you.
