On most mowers you just need to put a jumper wire (short circuit) across the seat switch terminals. You can disconnect the switch and just connect the two wires together.
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.
Best for all-sized lawns, the Snapper rear engine rider features a straight-forward design that offers easy-to-reach controls and a convenient 5-speed shift-on-the-go disc drive system. Plus, with vertical stand-on-edge capability, the mower is simple to maintain and takes up less room in storage.
The PTO switch is a critical safety device developed to prevent unintentional blade actuation of lawn equipment. This switch is part of a series of controls that comprise a mower`s safety interlock system, requiring riders to use proper procedure when operating machinery.
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.
There are 4 safety interlock switches on our lawn and garden tractors. The locations vary slightly between Step-Thru® and box frame tractors.

How do you wire a snapper rear engine rider? – Omega Rear Drive Wheel Snapper Mowers
There are 2 wires to the starter (If installed) the positive 12V DC must be hooke up correctly to the starter or it will run backwards. Then the ignition wire that goes to the run position of the start (on/off if installed other than on the engine) switch. Also the engine alternator output wire to the battery and the battery ground wire. (if installed)

I can’t get my rear engine snapper mower to go in reverse. Forward seams to be great. What could the problem be?
Need to replace the rubber drive disc!
Snapper series 23 wont turn over and when you try to manually start it, the pull seems to be locked.
That suggests that your piston is seized, but that may not be the case. First, check underneath to make sure that you have not allowed a build-up of debris that could be stopping the blade from turning. Second, remove the plug and see if the machine (since removing the plug will stop you from having any compression to pull against) will turn over. Might be a good idea to spray some WD-40 or something similar into the plug hole to see if that will loosen things up if the first two suggestions have no effect. You can, of course, (with the spark plug disconnected) attempt to turn the blade underneath. That would move your piston in the cylinder, and, once it is moving more easily, allow you to use your pull start to get the machine running.
Hope this get you started.
My snapper mower only has two forward gears and no reverse. the clutch is worn. Could replacing the clutch fix the problem or is there something else going on with the transmission?
Typically if your clutch is worn, you would experience some slippage in all gears. If your forward gears work, but reverse does not, you should be looking at a potentially more serious problem.
Installing a engine on a snapper rear engine mower
It is not difficult. The boggest thing is getting the linkages, fuel lines if there was an external tank, wiring and belt rounting the same as it was before you remvoed the old engine. Usually there are only 4 engine mounting bolts and the the engine comes free. Once you have the 4 bolts out you can losen the belt / drive assy and lift the belt free. You will have to transfer any engine output pulleys or drive connections to the new engine. Just note the distance on onthe output shaft from the old engine to the new one.
The biggest problem most people have is they forget to service the new engine with oil then pull the engine through to fill the oil filter (on larger engines) to pre-oil the engine. What happens is the oil level initally drops and the oil level sensor kills the spark.
It really is more simple than most people would think. It is all a matter of the time it takes to align the engine, control linkages, belts or engine outputs.
