All, I have just finished restoring my JD 180.. I still have the deck removed from the mower.. I have one issue...
When I go to engage the mower PTO the engine shuts off. And not like it’s choking out the motor but more of just the ignition is shutting off.
The previous owener had jumper wires in the neutral safety switch and also the seat switch.
Any simple ideas before I start reading into the wiring?
The PTO does move freely by hand and will turn for a split second before turning off.
