Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hello, and thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is***** will be happy to assist you. How old is your battery? How long do you have to wait, before your pto clutch will work again, after it shuts off?
Are you saying, that even if you run a positive wire, directly from your battery, to your pto clutch, your clutch still only runs for one minute???
These are only troubleshooting questions.
Will your clutch start right back up, after it shut off, or do you have to wait? You may have a loose connection. We can continue from here.
Thanks for this information. Do you have a 12 volt test light, or a multimeter? If so, we can do some troubleshooting.
Thank you for this information. No I did not get that reply. If your clutch is disengaging, although you are getting a continuous 12 volts, you may be loosing your ground. Are you running a ground directly from your battery, when you hook your clutch up direct?
Okay. Your clutch still shut off, with the hook up you posted above?? Jackie, can you double check your model numbers for me. The numbers you posted are not working for me. I would like to pull up a wiring schematic. Some pto clutches get ground via a relay.
Jackie, if your clutch is shutting down even when you have it hooked up directly to your battery, you have either a faulty new pto clutch, or a loose connection.
A direct hook up to your battery, eliminates all relays, pto switch, and safety switches.
Okay. No problem.
Thank you for checking. The part you are calling a fusible link, is a diode, I believe.
Many times there is a diode referred to as an anti chatter diode in-line. If i can pull up a wiring schematic, I can double check this for you.
This diode is normally in place to protect your pto switch ...
