Mower stalls when brake is released or PTO engaged
Engine on my Model 917274040 starts and runs when brake is depressed and PTO (mower blades) is not engaged. Releasing brake or engaging PTO with brake depressed immediately cuts off engine (electrical cut off). Replaced the brake safety switch, but same symptoms. Brake safety switch was difficult to install and I may have damaged the new switch installing it (installation help?).
Is this a good question?
