Does the pulley spin freely on the engine shaft with engine OFF? It should, If not, unplug the electric clutch and try again, if it is still locked, the electric pulley has failed. Bearing is locked up!
Make and Model!!
Make and model?Is this electric clutch pulley?
OK. So the pto has a pto brake, and the shaft is locked until there is pressure applied to the pto clutch. Have you checked the pto switches ? If pto switch is not good, it will kill the engine when the pto is engaged/ Switch and harness need to be examined/ Pto clutch pressure can be tested, if it appears to be pto clutch related.
