I was checking the fuses on our JD X300 and have 15, 20, and

7.5 amp fuses in it...
I was checking the fuses on our JD X300 and have 15, 20, and 7.5 amp fuses in it. The manual says it should have a 15 amp and two 7.5 amp fuses. Why the discrepancy?
JA: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?
Customer: Just discovered it today. Yesterday, my husband was checking the fuses and dropped one which I just found and it is a 20 amp fuse. I checked the manual to see where to insert it and found the different amp numbers.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: yes
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: The original problem we are trying to fix is the PTO won't engage. We have replaced the PTO switch, put in a new battery, and were now checking the fuses. I'd really appreciate advice re the PTO problem if you can offer any.

You did not answer my original question about the different fuses. Also, there is power to the PTO so what do I do about the failed clutch?

HI

I was looking at you last sentence I'd really appreciate advice re the PTO problem if you can offer any.

as far as the fuses, in you bought it new

they were missed installed , you can change it back to your manual

won't hurt any thing

You need to replace the Clutch , if you need part number let me know
