Make and model? Do you have a voltmeter to see if the electric clutch looses voltage?

Model number?906786 example. Does it have a pto relay? Need model number to find the wiring diagram. Clutch should not heat up and quit, but a relay will.

Shows no relay for the pto clutch, just the ignition switch, to pto switch to the clutch. Need to check voltage when the clutch will not engage. See if the pto switch is sending voltage to the clutch.No power to clutch, switch is bad, power to the clutch , the clutch is bad! See 5-18 in parts manual link below.

Clutch shows to be non adjustable model.
