No power to any safety switches. seat, brake, for/rev engage.Its like the rear wire harnass is dead. Any ideas? I have the clutch unplugged and test light inserted on yellow wire in plug…..nothing?

How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?

We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :

If the PTO clutch is not getting power, if the clutch solenoid is defective, or if the clutch is worn out, the lawn mower blades will not engage. The PTO clutch is not repairable—if the clutch is defective, you must replace it.
Powershift PTO engagement problems could be from blocked hoses or fittings, bad connections or ground or the solenoid. Mechanical PTO engagement problems could originate from low air pressure, improper cable installation or back lash too tight.
PTO clutches generally overheat because of improper lubrication/greasing (both too much and too little can cause problems), excessive sideload, or a new installation. Operators are advised to reduce sideload and inspect grease levels first.
A clutch that won`t engage at all means there is serious damage somewhere. Check for a bent linkage, a seized slave cylinder, or a seized throw-out bearing. Beyond those, check for binding in the linkage, a corroded cable, or a failed friction plate.
For power shift operation, when a power shift PTO is engaged, a solenoid is energized. Air or hydraulic fluid then compresses a clutch pack in the PTO. This locks the PTO output gear to the output shaft and allows work to be done. When the power shift PTO is disengaged, the solenoid de-energizes.
Pump trouble is usually characterized by increased noise, increased heat, erratic operation of cylinders, difficulty or inability to develop full output, decreased speed of cylinders or hydraulic motors, or failure of the system to work at all.
Engage the PTO switch. The clutch should have an amp draw of approximately 4.0 amps. If the meter reads significantly above or below 4.0 amps, there may be a shorted coil, faulty switch or battery causing the problem. The clutch assembly should be kept free from debris buildup.
Read the volts. If the battery output indicates 12.5 volts or below, charge the battery. The PTO clutch will not engage without sufficient voltage. Look for the in-line fuse between the electrical wiring harness from the lever switch to the PTO clutch assembly under the deck.
This operation is crucial to the overall functioning of riding mowers, and thus PTO clutch repair may need to be immediately performed on riding mower models that have a failed clutch. Fortunately, you can fix your clutch irrespective of your experience with PTO clutch installation.
“Riding” the clutch is the most common reason for premature clutch failure. Even the slightest pressure on the pedal will partially disengage the clutch, causing the release bearing, pressure plate and flywheel to overheat.
What happens if you drive a car after the clutch burns out? If the friction lining is on, the flywheel is the first to fail. It`s uneven overheating occurs. As a result, one part of the mechanism will be too hard compared to the other, which will lead to its deformation.

When you replace the pto clutch (717-04080), does it have a tight fit with a bracket or does it have a little play.
ANSWER : There shouldn’t be any play in it. This should fit snug unless you have rubber bushings on the bracket mount to help compensate the torque of the belt engaging.

Where is the fuse located on a LT1554 cub cadet
ANSWER : Check the connector and wires at the pto clutch. Sometime the movement will create a cut in the wiring you may be able to see. If so if the wire touches ground it will blow the fuse and if the wires touch each other it will short.
if the short is not there then the clutch is bad?BMW PARTS
