Is this the manualy engaged pto? Or the electric ,with button on the dash to pull? Model number?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.

Button to pull on dash. Mower is a XT2 and model number with the exception of the first letter or number which I cannot read is ...3WQA4CN010

Expert:  Curtis B. replied 6 months ago.

Ok, ten it has electric pto clutch on the bottom of the crankshaft. With engine off, check the wire harness on the electric clutch, to see if it could have been pulled loose when you were working on the deck.

Can you direct me where to look for the wire harness

Expert:  Curtis B. replied 6 months ago.

# ***** is the clutch, the harness plugs directly into it. Mounted under the engine, and is the drive for the mower deck.
