I have a Wheel Horse 312-8 I am almost finished with restoring.
I am having a problem with the PTO Safety Switch. When I pull the PTO Lever, the engine's power get's cut.
I have examined the switch without removing it, and all the leads look ok.
Can someone tell me exactly how the PTO safety works?
I understand that when you push the PTO lever forward to engage, The PTO Lever leaves the contact point on the safety switch. I am guessing this is suppose to prevent starting when the PTO is on.
How does the power get transferred through the safety switch when I engage the mower deck?
If you can help me understand how this works, I can perhaps figure this out.
Thanks in advance!
