Is there a way to adjust the PTO safety switch that's located under the steering column? Sometimes I have to pull down on the PTO lever to make it start.
Thanks

Yes you can adjust the PTO safety switch.

The PTO safety switch bolts to has two slots the you can adjust the switch.

Loosen one or both bolts then you can make the adjustments.

Also the neutral safety switch is adjustable too.

I bet a good lubing with WD40 or similar would be helpful. Might just be full of dust and such.

I like to "adjust" their position, right into the round file... not gonna say "how" (it varies by machine a bit anyways)

wrong two bolts

you adjust the two little bolts below in the picture.  if you were to take the safety switch off you will see that there are two slots the the little bolts.

just loosen one or both of the little bolts to make the adjustment.

 

there is another safety switch down by the shifter.

I think my 216 has two switches stacked there - one for starting circuit, the other for ignition if you leave the seat with PTO engaged.

yes pidjones 

one side of the PTO switch goes to seat switch (pink wires)

the other side of the PTO switch goes tho the ignition (coil)

 

here is a diagram for the wiring
