Hello. Thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is***** will be happy to assist you.
Do you know if your pto clutch has ever been replaced?
The reason I am asking, is because some pto clutches are designed for clockwise operations, and some are designed for counterclockwise operations.
I have an image of the correct pto clutch for your mower. I would like for you to take a look, to see if it matches the pto clutch you have.

We can assume that your engine is spinning in the correct direction. This leads me to believe that our problem is either caused by the routing of your belt, or your pto clutch.
Thanks for this information. Sorry for the delay. Your gear box could very well be the source of our problem.
If your gear box has been disassembled, this problem can occur if all internal parts were not re-assembled in the correct orientation.
