Customer Question

I have a 26hp 54" poulan pro rider. I mowed yesterday then washed my mower while running. Took a ride around block to dry. Then shut off. Tried to restart. It did but soon I let off clutch it died. I have forced down brake switch and it runs drives fine. But now when I pull blade engage it dies. I jumped seat switch to eliminate that. Still dies. I have taken deck off to eliminate a load/bad bearing. Still dies, dies instantly like a kill

Clean the Clutch connection out and dry it good. Sounds like you may just have dirty or wet connections. I would just pull them all and clean and dry them all out.
