Guess it's not available right now for some reason.Anyways, the most obvious thing would be that the seat switch is shorted out.Engaging the lever and it kills the engine is going to be in the safety circuit.Those vary from model to model and even in lumps of serial numbers.So you will have a key switch that all the power goes through then on to the fuel shut off solenoid on the carb.That's what triggers to kill the engine when a safety circuit is engaged.So depending on your setup you will have a seat swtich, maybe a reverse overide switch, maybe a pto switch, and a clutch switch.All of them work together.It's not really easy to test them to see if they're working properly either. But that's what you have to do.One of them is going to be not working. It can be temporary from water shorting out the wires, or it could be a bad switch now.It could also be a bad key switch since it's part of that whole system.
