The pto clutch engages well when cold but when it gets hot

Customer Question

the pto clutch engages well when cold but when it gets hot it turns off, but if we hold the PTO switch up in place then the clutch will work. I'm thinking it is just the switch?

If holding the switch makes it work, the indication it is the switch! Replace the switch!

Cutis that is what I thought. the dealer wants to say it is the pto clutch, they don't know a whole lot so cause some confusion

If it were clutch, it would not come back on!

Holding switch would make no difference.
